Topping Out Of Bronze Wandsworth Is Celebrated

The burnished metal glad high rise designed to reflect Wandsworth’s ‘warmth and spirit’

Strawberry Star Group have marked a significant milestone in the construction of its iconic Bronze development in Buckhold Road with a traditional topping out ceremony.

The Bronze-clad landmark, which forms a major part of Wandsworth Town's regeneration scheme, was ‘crowned’ by the Leader of Wandsworth Council, Ravi Govindia and Santhosh Gowda, Chairman of Strawberry Star Group.

The development takes its name from the burnished bronze metal panels on its exterior, which has been designed to reflect the warmth and spirit of the borough.

Located at the centre of Wandsworth Town and adjacent to the 55-acre King George’s Park, Bronze offers 77 luxury new homes including one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, and three-bedroom duplexes, arranged across three distinctive bronze towers of 11, 18, and 20 storeys. The area around Bronze is currently being updated with new public squares, shopping parades and pedestrian links.
Santhosh Gowda, Chairman, Strawberry Star Group, said: “Today’s topping out ceremony is a landmark for us considering that Bronze is our foray into development, which further led to our volume housing vision and mixed-use developments. Wandsworth’s transformation means that residents of Bronze can benefit from great facilities and amenities all whilst living in a well-connected part of the city. I’d like to thank Wandsworth Council, our vendors, consultants and stakeholders for their support and cooperation in helping us reach this stage, and welcome in advance the new residents at Bronze ahead of their arrival in their new homes early next year.”

Cllr Ravi Govindia said, “Bronze is an important addition to the Wandsworth Town regeneration plan and local housing delivery. It is encouraging to note that they have a strong development pipeline in the UK and are investing in communities. This is a great example of further regeneration and investment in the borough through this new residential space. Wandsworth Council is working with a number of partners to deliver huge improvements to our town centres, and this impressive development meets our ambition for the regeneration of this area.”

With the first residents due to move into their new homes in April 2020, Strawberry Star has already taken reservations for 40% of the apartments. The development has proven particularly popular with first time buyers, families and working professionals. The building has 24-hour security planned and a 12-hour daytime concierge service. Bronze will also feature a residents-only roof terrace, fitted with a children’s play area.
