Situated at the gateway of Nine Elms, the Sky Gardens scheme consists of a 36-storey tower facing Wandsworth Road and an eight-storey mixed use building on Wyvil Road. There are a total of 239 homes, comprising of a mix of one, two, three and four bedroom apartments. Over a third of the scheme is affordable and all private apartments have been allocated.
Designed by award-winning architects Careyjones Chapmantolcher with interiors by YOO Design, the tower has been built to the twelfth floor and the mixed use building has been topped out. MACE is the lead contractor on the project. In the final phase of development, the tower is scheduled to reach the 20th floor by January 2017, with final build completion scheduled for April 2017.
The development is based around the concept of sky gardens, which provides residents in both buildings with ‘floating’ green spaces. Gillespies, the team behind 20 Fenchurch Street’s Sky Gardens, have designed the gardens for all year round usage, with temperature and humidity controlled to ensure maximum enjoyment.
