58-70 York Road is a rather lovely development of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments in Battersea, London, moments from the Thames and Clapham Junction. Smack in the middle of Wandsworth Town, Northcote Road and Battersea Village. And all that makes this area great.
Battersea is experiencing a swathe of investment. A Northern line extension is set to arrive in 2021, further enhancing the area’s already superb transport links. The Winstanley Estate, just behind 58-70 York Road, is undergoing a £1.4bn regeneration, centred around a new park and set to feature amenities such as a health centre, a co-working space and library. And with these changes are coming a host of new residents, including The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD). In short, lots of change is afoot. All of it for the better!
Fancy a workout before your day begins? The Thames Path, London’s prettiest running track is on your doorstep. Not to mention an array of gyms, yoga studios and CrossFit centres. With menus ranging from the fully healthy to the full English, brunch spots are just as plentiful. As are your commute options if you’re headed to the office. River bus to Canary Wharf anyone? Afternoons here are made for taking it easy. Stroll up to Battersea Park and escape into its picturesque greenery. Hit the boutiques of the King’s Road, Sloane Street, Fulham Road or Northcote Road - or Westfield London - and embrace some retail therapy. Enjoy the wealth of cafes in the area. Or pop up to the South Bank, Covent Garden and West End. With so many options, your only problem is choosing.
"GRID’s second project in York Road, Wandsworth, is an opportunity to mark the entrance of a local shopping parade with a mixed use tower. The public realm improvements pull together a number of routes while the presence of the building defines a legible sequence of events leading eventually to the river.
Planning consent was awarded to 58-70 York Road, a key island site on the York Road and Yelverton Road. The current building is a 1970s public house with surface car parking. It is surrounded by confused boundary conditions and poor quality public realm. As with so many post-industrial areas permeability is poor which results in confused route finding and ultimately inactive streets. Taking into consideration the emerging context directed by the Lombard Road/York Road SPD and Winstanley/York Road Estates Masterplan, GRID proposed a stepped mini tower of maximum 14 storeys with a 5 storey attached counterpoint block. Though higher than the immediate context, the proposal delivers townscape advantages as the site is on the elbow of an east west strategic road. Long distance visibility of the massing acts as a marker for local streets and routes.
The stepped form allows large roof terraces looking toward the river. On the south side the splayed façade of reflective metal will catch the light and change colour with sun angles. Public realm improvements make up a large part of the offering with repaving and landscaping. The site sits a few hundred metres away from GRID's design for Lookers and Linden Homes."
