Landid Property Holdings have received planning permission for a new Grade A office building in Putney.
Wandsworth Council has granted planning permission for the new building overlooking the Grade II listed Wandsworth Park with views of the River Thames on the corner of Putney Bridge and Deodar Road.
Designed by dn-a architects, Landid say The Parklife Building will transform the existing site, a 40,000 sq ft vacant office building, into a 80,000 sq ft, “design-led and user-focused urban workplace”.
The building will also provide 7,000 sq ft of flexible public retail space fronting onto the park, as well as amenities such as cycle and shower facilities, on-site yoga lessons and multiple cafes. The office building extends to five storeys with terraces on every floor.
Claire Hammond, Development Director at Landid said: “Putney has lost a significant amount of commercial space as a result of permitted development rights, and there is a lack of Grade A floorspace. The Parklife Building will have everything we look for in a workspace – including excellent connectivity, amenity, and character within a very special setting.”
“We have already had a number of very positive discussions with national and local occupiers looking for good quality office space in Putney. We are confident The Parklife Building will draw a range of new occupiers to this attractive part of south-west London and provide the calibre of workspace that has a positive impact on business performance, including staff attraction and retention, productivity, wellness and more.”
Nick Troullides, Director at dn-a said; “Our architectural approach is to deliver a high quality design which creates a much improved office building to attract occupiers and enhance the existing streetscape. The architecture is sympathetic and respectful to its surroundings, yet contemporary in its execution. High quality architectural detailing and materials and sustainable design are intrinsic to our proposal to create a highly desirable workplace.”
The Parklife Building will start on site in early 2017, with an 18-month build period and expected completion date of June 2018.
