Whatever your view on this mixed-use development along the Nine Elms stretch of the Thames, it will certainly make getting around easier. Not only will the Northern line extension offer a direct underground commute to the City from Nine Elms and Battersea, it will also open up a swathe of walkable river bank connecting Chelsea and Tower bridges. This river path will take in bustling Southbank plus green spaces surrounding the new Nine Elms US embassy building - due for completion in Spring 2017.
“We suspect it might not just be the American embassy making its move,” says Jonathan Lloyd-Ham of Dexters Kennington. “The Dutch embassy is planning to relocate too, making the Nine Elms redevelopment a potential game changer for diplomatic corps that, historically, have clustered around prestigious West End addresses.” All of which makes that improved connectivity essential.
From Tower Bridge, along the Southbank to Nine Elms and Battersea, Dexters are always the first to hear about new and off market property for sale in central London. So get in touch if you’d like to hear more about this exciting area.
A stretch of riverbank in front of Battersea Power Station opens to the public today for the first time since the generator was built in the Thirties. The one-acre space lies along the initial phase of the £9 billion redevelopment of London’s most famous industrial building. It will be accessible through a new entrance in a former railway arch called Grosvenor Bridge Arch, near Chelsea Bridge and Battersea Park. The space will eventually form part of the six-acre Power Station Park, which will run in front of and to either side of Europe’s largest brick building. This will open up the entire stretch of the Thames riverbank in front of it by 2020. Londoners will then be able to walk on the south side of the river from Chelsea Bridge all the way to Tower Bridge for the first time.
