Flagship Scheme of 290 Homes Launches in Battersea


Hong Kong, 1 July 2015 - The first phase of Battersea Exchange – a landmark development of 290 homes located just moments from Battersea Park has been launched in the market. The latest scheme from leading boutique developer, Taylor Wimpey Central London, will transform the Zone 2 area between Queenstown Road and Battersea Park stations and introduce a vibrant new residential-led community.

Selection of Styles

Situated at the gateway to the Nine Elms regeneration area, the scheme will provide high quality accommodation to one of the capital's fastest growing and most exciting districts. Ranging from studio to three bedroom apartments, the collection of homes caters for a diverse range of purchasers that span first time buyers, couples, families and downsizers.

The new homes will be spread across 10 buildings ranging from two to 18 storeys in height. Each residence will feature contemporary interiors including bespoke kitchens, underfloor heating and timber flooring, as well as highly desirable private outdoor space. The first phase of the scheme comprises two apartment blocks: Mercer House and Foundry House, the names of which reflect the traditional crafts and industries that were previously linked to the area.

New Community

Designed by award-winning architectural practice, Feilden Clegg Bradley, the development will deliver a substantial number of homes and create a vastly improved public realm that offers a new pedestrian route linking the two overground stations, a landscaped public square and new office and retail amenities, establishing the area as an enjoyable place to live, work and spend time.

Proposals for the landscaping also include the sensitive restoration of the listed railway arches to form innovative and vibrant spaces.

As part of the development, Taylor Wimpey Central London will also provide rejuvenated educational facilities for St Mary's Catholic primary school, including increased capacity to a two-Form entry and a new Early Years centre.

Well Connected

Battersea Exchange benefits from exceptional transport connections and is only a short walk from two mainline train stations: Battersea Park that provides a direct service into London Victoria in five minutes, and Queenstown Road that travels directly into Waterloo in nine minutes. Once complete in 2020, the Northern Line underground extension will provide a fast and high capacity transport link that will further boosts accessibility to central London and the local area. The two new tube stations will be within close proximity to the development with Battersea only a seven minute walk and Nine Elms just 15 minutes away.

Located within the capital's largest opportunity area, Battersea Exchange will command one of the most prestigious positions south of the River Thames. The scheme is close to the beautiful Battersea Park and the iconic Battersea Power Station, and will be neighbour to the New Covent Garden Market, the largest fruit, vegetable and flower market in the UK.

Granted planning permission in December 2014, the scheme represents the latest flagship development for Taylor Wimpey Central London. The first homes are due for completion in Q1 2017.

Buyers can currently choose from a selection of studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, with prices starting from £415,000.
