Kohn Pedersen Fox Architects has won planning approval for a new riverfront development to the north-west of Gravesend town centre in Kent
The project, called Clifton Wharf, will occupy two brownfield sites, with one site including a disused iron railway pier extending out into the Thames.
The scheme also comprises 145 residential apartments, a retail unit and provisional river-related uses. The design overcomes the challenge of a split location with five sliced ellipsoidal buildings.
Clifton Wharf is expected to advance both the Kent and Medway Structure Plan and Gravesham Borough Council’s local plan by redressing the decline to the environment and infrastructure of the area and revitalising Gravesend town centre.
