The redevelopment of the former Christie’s warehouse site in Nine Elms is progressing, and tenants are expected to move in to The Residence, two blocks of flats, within the coming weeks.
The Residence, an L&Q development, includes 76 homes which will be offered to local residents at rents of between 38% and 60% of market rates, and 114 purpose-built for private rent. The wider redevelopment of the 2.7 acre site is providing a total of 510 new flats.
Brian Reilly, Director of Housing and Regeneration at Wandsworth Council, said: “Our focus is to maximise the housing offers available to Wandsworth residents. This is another example of how former industrial land at Nine Elms continues to provide new homes, businesses, arts, culture and community space to help bring this area to life.”
The development also includes space for employment and community use.
A new outdoor public space is being created on the site, including part of the new Nine Elms Linear Park.
