We are delighted to announce that we have received planning permission for our first development of apartments in Vauxhall Street, located just 300 metres from the River Thames. The site, which was previously the Rising Sun Public House, currently comprises six residential units, which will be replaced by a collection of 15 new-build apartments, including an expansive three bedroom penthouse and communal roof garden.
The existing premises will be demolished and replaced with a new six storey block providing contemporary one, two and three bedroom properties, each with a private balcony or terrace. The focal point of the development will be the communal roof garden, spanning 2583 sq ft and comprising distinctive areas for different activities, with a mixture of soft landscaping and seating. Raised planters and hedges will provide screening to ensure residents benefit from complete privacy while using this outdoor space. The entire development is car free, with cycle storage provided at basement level.
Thanks to an intelligent design, the apartments will enjoy open plan layouts, maximising the flow of natural light synonymous with many of our other schemes, while retaining well though-out space, stylish design traits and an outstanding specification. The site will achieve Secure by Design (Section 2) and will be constructed with a fabric first approach to sustainability, ensuring strong thermal performance, complemented by features including high efficiency boilers, a Sustainable Urban Drainage System and solar photovoltaic panels. Through this combination of measures, there will be a 35% reduction in carbon emissions over the level required by Part L of the Building Regulations (2014), with the new homes also meeting Lifetime Homes’ standards where feasible.
Further key benefits will include multistock brickwork with feature detailing, recessed balconies articulating the brick façade and a highly insulated, polyester powder coated (PPC) aluminium clad penthouse.
Mani Khiroya, Managing Director of Fruition Properties, comments: “This site is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the ongoing regeneration in both Vauxhall and Kennington, with excellent transport links ensuring easy access to surrounding areas of London and beyond. The development will offer well-designed homes with plenty of outdoor space and an outstanding specification, and further emphasise our internal planning and technical expertise to secure approval.”
The site is located between Vauxhall and Kennington with Vauxhall station offering underground and overground services just an eight-minute walk away, whilst Kennington, which is reachable in 14 minutes, offers access to the Northern Line. In addition to its vibrant nightlife, Vauxhall also offers the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of city life with picturesque Vauxhall Park within easy reach and the Albert Embankment offering an ideal location for a leisurely stroll along the River Thames. Other nearby attractions include New Covent Garden Market, the largest wholesale fruit, vegetable, and flower market in the United Kingdom and the popular Imperial War Museum, both just moments away.
We are always looking for new development opportunities, either with or without planning permission across London. If you are aware of suitable opportunities, please contact our Land Director on 020 3828 0109.
