Plans to build huge Battersea Bridge apartment block revealed

By Charlotte Lillywhite, Local Democracy Reporter 

Plans to build a huge apartment block up to 38 storeys tall near Battersea Bridge have been revealed. 

The Glassmill office building at the corner of the River Thames and Battersea Bridge Road would be demolished to make way for the proposed building.

The tower block in Battersea Bridge Road would contain up to 170 homes, including affordable homes, offices and community space. 

The proposals have been revealed in a request submitted by company Promontoria Battersea Ltd to Wandsworth council. 

The request outlines the level of information which should be provided in the environmental statement as part of the formal planning application, which has not yet been submitted.

The request said the development would “provide limited flexible commercial space, community and amenity spaces, landscaping and public realm works”.

A total of 338 residents have objected to the request on the council’s website, with particular concerns about the building’s proposed height.

A spokesman for Rockwell Property, the developer behind the scheme, said: “We have not yet submitted detailed proposals for One Battersea Bridge. 

“The environmental impact assessment scoping opinion request submitted in mid-December provides an overview of the plans and does not detail the significant public benefits that will be set out as part of the planning application.

“We are continuing to review feedback from our public consultation and engage with stakeholders, including officers, as we develop the details of the planning application.”

Wandsworth council said it would respond to the scoping opinion request in due course.
