Lombard Wharf’s topping out ceremony marks a significant milestone in the project’s delivery
Today Barratt London hosted a topping out ceremony at Lombard Wharf. This marks the end of major construction work on the building’s frame.
Designed by local architects Patel Taylor, the landmark twisting tower sits on the banks of the Thames. Comprising 134 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses upon completion – with 27 homes available through shared ownership, making up 20% of the development.
Members of the development team, architects Patel Taylor and members of Wandsworth Council where all in attendance at the event, marking a significant milestone in the project’s delivery.
The building’s unique design will feature wraparound balconies rotated at an angle of two degrees, creating the appearance of a series of ‘rotating discs’. The building has already received praise for its design and on third November 2016, Lombard Wharf was 'Highly Commended' at the Housebuilder Awards in the category 'Best Design for Four Storeys or More.'
Ed McCoy, Sales Director, Barratt London, commented:
“We are very excited to be celebrating this stage in the building programme for Lombard Wharf. We hope the building will be a great addition to this part of the riverside and its iconic design together with its location, just a short walk from Clapham Junction, should also make it very popular with those looking to move into the area“.
Pankaj Patel, Director at Patel Taylor, commented:
“We are very pleased to see Lombard Wharf shaping up into an elegantly crafted riverside landmark. Its twisting sculptural silhouette creates a fluid shimmering illusion of movement in this waterside setting and the combination of new homes, exemplary design and generous public realm, will create a new destination in Wandsworth, drawing people towards and reconnecting the local community to the riverfront.”
It is hoped that the first completions for the building will take place in the summer of 2017. For more information regarding the development, please visit click here.
