Permission granted for major Fulham wharf development

Posted on by in News

Henley Investment Management has received planning permission to build a cluster of 17-storey residential buildings with 276 apartments at the Albert & Swedish Wharf, a site described as one of the last remaining undeveloped riverside locations on the River Thames in London.

Henley’s scheme will also transform an underused two-acre site by Wandsworth Bridge, on the north bank of the River Thames, to provide a 5,100m2 logistics facility. The development will include a new wharf and ancillary office space.

The planning application approved by London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham councillors, includes a new jetty to improve capacity for handling waterborne cargo.

The 276 residential apartments will range in size from studio to four-bed, and 35% of them will be designated as affordable, a mix of social rent and intermediate rent. Every flat will have a private balcony or terrace, the developer said.

Ian Rickwood, Chief Executive of Henley Investment Management, said: “The redevelopment of Albert & Swedish Wharf is a truly unique opportunity to bring this site back into positive use. Not only does it provide much needed housing for London but also an operational wharf for last mile logistics, where demand remains high and having a site like this is incredibly rare. The River Thames has huge untapped potential for handling light freight and utilising the river more will help ease congestion and reduce pollution across London.”
