KPF, Foster and Rolfe Judd scoop major Nine Elms skyscraper approvals

  • Comment

A raft of major skyscraper schemes by Foster + Partners, KPF and Rolfe Judd in Nine Elms, London have been given the green light

Last night (18 June) Wandsworth Council’s planning committee approved both Foster + Partners and Neil Tomlinson Architects’ masterplan for New Covent Garden Market regeneration masterplan and KPF’s Market Towers redevelopment.

Replacing a 1975 GMW-designed tower block, KPF’s proposal features two mixed-use towers of 58 and 43 storeys respectively.

The scheme includes 487 apartments, a ‘sky lobby’, 10,986m2 of office space and a 209-room hotel with the tallest tower reaching 200 metres.

Foster + Partners and Neil Tomlinson Architects’ 23 hectare New Covent Garden Market redevelopment scheme creates 2,500 new homes alongside a modern fruit and vegetable trading facility. The scheme includes three towers of 112 metres, 131 metres and 157 metres respectively.

The project which is close to the proposed Kieran Timberlake-designed new American embassy also features shops, cafes, bars, commercial space and a 200-bed hotel.

Last week, neighbouring borough Lambeth Council approved plans by Rolfe Judd to create 737 new homes above a Sainsbury’s supermarket. The project features towers of 19, 28 and 37 storeys respectively.
