Wandsworth Borough Council has granted planning permission for a 12-storey, 240,000-square-foot office building on the site of Royal Mail’s former South London depot in Nine Elms.

Quadrant, a UK real estate asset management and development company, completed the purchase of the site in partnership with AIMco on behalf of its client in December 2020.

The firm’s plan has a focus on nature. The office will have ‘extensive” internal planting, and on-floor terraces and a roof terrace will “work to bring the outside in”. Quadrant is targeting BREEAM Outstanding, Wired Platinum and Well Platinum-enabled.

Tristram Gethin, founding partner at Quadrant, said: “Receiving consent for plot A is a huge step forward for this site and is exciting for us and the Nine Elms community. The space we’ll create here will be well suited to post-pandemic occupiers, with a focus on collaboration, wellness, sustainability and quality.

“With the US Embassy and Apple creating a new campus close by, we expect strong demand for office space in Nine Elms. The considered design we have developed is aimed at accommodating the wide variety of occupiers seeking out offices that nurture innovation and creativity.”

Construction is due to start this summer.
