Wandsworth Council has approved plans by 5plus Architects for an 11-storey co-workspace building in Battersea, south London

According to the practice, the £10 million project in Havelock Terrace will create ‘an enterprise innovation hub for the burgeoning digital and tech sector’ emerging around Giles Gilbert Scott’s Battersea Power Station.

The ground, mezzanine and first floor levels of the 4,090m² building will have a 6m floor-to-ceiling height to allow for light industrial uses with the managed co-workspace above aimed at SMEs and start-ups.

Sitting on a currently vacant site, the tower will feature a rooftop terrace, meeting rooms, a large goods lift and cycle store with changing areas and showers.

5plus director David King-Smith, said: ‘Since Apple declared its move to Battersea, hundreds of start-ups are expected to flock to the area to feed off the tech giant’s requirements and will need high-quality, managed workspace that is flexible for a variety of uses.

‘There is a regeneration vision for the wider area and the developer consulted closely with the local authority and the GLA.’

Work is expected to start on site this summer.
