Development will include hotel along with office space

A £25m mixed-use development in south-west London has been given the green light by local planners.

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

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

Designed by Guildford practice, Wamm, 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, though it is not expected to be referred to the Greater London Authority for final sign-off.

The site 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, which has been designed alongside structural engineer AKT II and building services and fire engineer Sweco, will provide 123 homes,1,200sq m of retail space and 1,500sq m of commercial space built if approved.
