With plans to provide over 800 homes alongside commercial, financial and education spaces across 12 buildings ranging from 2 to 26 storeys, 101 Prince of Wales Drive forms part of the wider drive to regenerate former industrial areas within the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area.
Previously known as The Gas Holders Site, the development forms the first site to come forward as part of the St William Homes LLP joint venture between National Grid and the Berkeley Group. St William was set up to redevelop redundant National Grid land in London and the South East.
Designed by architects Squire and Partners, Prince of Wales Drive consists of a series of contemporary apartments blocks centred around beautifully landscaped gardens.
Inspired by the proximity of Battersea Park, Gillespies’ designs for the gardens sought to bring together the buildings and park through a finely detailed tapestry of seasonal flowers, trees and planting that permeate and flow effortlessly through the development.
The gardens will provide a collection of diverse spaces, including a central courtyard with a serene water feature where residents can convene, sit and relax.
