Wandsworth Council has approved plans by MSMR Architects to redevelop Ransome’s Dock in Battersea
The dock, close to the Thames riverside, is set to be redeveloped into 118 private and affordable residential apartments, 2,200 m² of commercial space and a new public piazza.
The 0.55 hectare site had previously been given consent in 2008 for a mixed use development, however MSMR was bought in by client Curatus to revise the proposals in June 2012.
The new plans will see a number of building range from 3 to 10 storeys in height and has been designed to maximise the impact of the new public piazza and reflect the character of the dock.
The area close to Battersea bridge is being described as a creative quarter in south west London. The area is home to the offices of Foster + Partners and the Royal College of Art campus.
