Topping Out Ceremony For Lombard Wharf

A new landmark 28 storey building in Wandsworth

Major construction work is now complete at Lombard Wharf in Lombard Road which is providing shared ownership homes, a new stretch of the Thames Path, and the foundations of a new bridge as well as 1-3 bedroom riverside flats.

The site is being developed by Barratt London, and had been formerly vacant after previous warehouse and office buildings on it were demolished. 

The 28 storey development will deliver 134 flats, including 27 shared ownership homes as well as opening up an adjoining railway arch for pedestrians and cyclists which will become a new part of the Thames Path, and groundworks for the forthcoming Diamond Jubilee Bridge over the river to Fulham. It is hoped that the first completions for the building will take place later during the summer.

Pankaj Patel, Director at Patel Taylor, said, “We are very pleased to see Lombard Wharf shaping up into an elegantly crafted riverside landmark. Its twisting sculptural silhouette creates a fluid shimmering illusion of movement in this waterside setting and the combination of new homes, exemplary design and generous public realm, will create a new destination in Wandsworth, drawing people towards and reconnecting the local community to the riverfront.”

Ed McCoy, Sales Director at Barratt London, said, “We are very excited to be celebrating this stage in the building programme for Lombard Wharf. We hope the building will be a great addition to this part of the riverside and its iconic design together with its location, just a short walk from Clapham Junction, should also make it very popular with those looking to move into the area.“

Leader of wandsworth Council Ravi Govindia said, “The Diamond Jubilee Bridge is a key element in opening up this formerly industrial part of Battersea to local people, welcoming new affordable housing, new businesses and jobs, and new investment as part of the Greater London Authority’s Clapham Junction to Battersea Riverside Housing Zone.”

Last November, Lombard Wharf was Highly Commended in the 'Best Design for Four Storeys or More' category at the Housebuilder Awards.
