The Site

New Bondway is situated in LB Lambeth on the corner of Bondway and Parry Street.

Nine Elms

Located adjacent to Vauxhall underground and National Rail Stations, as well as Vauxhall Bus Station, the site is well served by public transport.

The New Bondway site falls within the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea (VNEB) opportunity area, now named Nine Elms on the South Bank, which has been earmarked by LB Lambeth, LB Wandsworth and the Mayor of London as an area for regeneration.

Frequently Asked Questions

Previous Proposal

What happened to the previous proposals for the site?
The previous scheme (The Octave) by Make architects was considered by the Planning Inspectorate and the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, but planning consent was not granted. While it was a sustainable development and had certain design merits, it lacked planned open spaces and failed to provide adequate pedestrian links to the wider public realm. Also the visual mass was seen as overbearing in relation to its surroundings.

The Development

Will you be knocking down the warehouse currently onsite, isn’t it a listed building?
The warehouse on site will be knocked down in order for our scheme to be built. Although an application was submitted to English Heritage to list the existing warehouse building, it was not granted.

How tall will the buildings be?
The north building will be 169.75m tall and the south building will be 81.7m high.

How many residential apartments will there be?
The scheme will deliver around 450 new homes onsite.

Will there be any affordable homes?
Yes, around 90 affordable apartments (20% of the total number of homes; 38 shared ownership and 52 rented) will be located mostly in the south block.

What amenity will be provided on site for residents?
There is a main roof garden above the office block which is directly connected to the communal lounge and meeting rooms. There is also a terrace at high level on the north tower; both of these are accessible to the residents of the north tower. There are an additional three terraces on the south block, at Levels 1, 2 and 11, acting as break out extensions to the indoor amenity rooms (including a multipurpose hall and games room).

How many cycle spaces will there be and where will they be located?
Our current proposals have a provision of 533 residential cycle parking spaces, 280 will be located in the basements and 253 will be located on Level 2. 30 office cycles and 16 retail cycles are located at street level.

The Team

Who are the developers of the site?
Earlier this year McLaren Property reached agreement to acquire the Vauxhall Bondway site. In November McLaren Property formed a joint venture with Citygrove to redevelop the site.


What is the proposed timescale for the development?
We submitted a detailed planning application to LB Lambeth in this month (February 2014) and we are likely to have a decision from LB Lambeth in Spring 2014. If granted we would aim to start construction work in 2015 with completion some time in 2018.

Where can I view and comment on the planning application?
The planning application is available to view and comment on via Lambeth Council’s website: www.lambeth.gov.uk/planning-and-building-control . The planning application number is: 14/00601/FUL.

How will McLaren and Citygrove engage with the local community?
McLaren and Citygrove remain committed to consultation with the local community. A second public exhibition is being held on Thursday 20th and Saturday 22nd February. If you are unable to attend the exhibition, you will be able to find the boards displayed on the 'Proposals' page, shortly after the exhibition.
