Plans include two 168m residential towers
Allies & Morrison’s Vauxhall Square development beside the transport interchange won planning last night.
The mixed-use scheme for CLS Holdings, featuring two residential towers of 168m, is part of the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area.
It also contains two hotels, two office buildings, student housing, a four-screen cinema plus retail, cafes and restaurants, as well as a new 50-bed homeless hostel, replacing the existing hostel on the site.
More than 50% of the scheme will be public realm, including a large new square in the centre of the development providing a pedestrian route through the site.
The square and public spaces will be the first step linking Vauxhall gyratory to a new linear park running through the whole opportunity area.
