The £25m scheme occupies a prominent corner plot on Putney High Street

Guildford-based architect Wamm has been given the green light for a £25m mixed-use development in Putney, south-west London.

The 10-storey building, at 31-43 Putney High Street, was given unanimous approval by Wandsworth council’s planning committee late last week.

The building will house a 197-bed hotel

The scheme will consist of a 197-bedroom hotel, 760sq m of retail space and 430sq m of office space. 

Approval was granted subject to a section 106 agreement. It is not expected to be referred to the Greater London Authority for final sign-off.

A small courtyard will be linked to a neighbouring Grimshaw scheme currently in application

The site, on the corner of Putney Bridge Road near the river, has been identified in the council’s local plan as one of the parts of Putney most in need of regeneration.

A neighbouring scheme drawn up by Grimshaw is currently being considered for approval, with plans to link the two schemes via an internal public courtyard.

Grimshaw’s 10-storey scheme will provide 123 homes,1,200sq m of retail space and 1,500sq m of commercial space if approved.
