FCBS wins planning for £60m Wandsworth tower

  • Comment

[First look + project data] Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBS) has won planning permission for a £60 million regeneration scheme on Garratt Lane in Wandsworth, south west London

The 24,944m² project for Wandsworth Council and South Thames College will replace two office buildings and a former teaching centre within the district’s historic town centre.

The mixed-use scheme will feature 201 apartments alongside 2,389m² of commercial space and a new public library. Basement car parking, a new public square and private landscaped courtyards will also be included.

FCBS’s design features three low rise buildings around the edge of the site and a fourth 26-storey building at the centre featuring a library at ground floor.

According to a statement: ‘The new library located in the heart of the site at the base of the distinctive tower will create a draw through the site and help to activate the proposed new Library Square.

‘Commercial uses along the High Street and Garratt Lane will provide a variety of unit sizes all with generous double-height frontages, contributing to a more attractive and pedestrian friendly town centre for Wandsworth.’
