The joint venture between Vinci UK Developments Ltd and St Modwen has outline consent for a further 422 homes and 66,000 sq ft of commercial space on the Apex site, which lies within the  Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea opportunity zone in south-west London.

Designed by Glenn Howells Architects, the Apex 1 development will feature a two-storey pavilion housing ground floor retail and a first-floor amenity area for residents.

Described as ‘near net zero’, the tower is located adjacent to the Nine Elms Northern Line tube station.
