Lombard Wharf – ‘a new London Landmark’


Canary Wharf magazine explores the ‘daring design’ of Lombard Wharf.

Barratt London’s Battersea development, Lombard Wharf, is featured in Canary Wharf magazine’s spotlight on “three new-build properties promising to turn a profit”. Describing Lombard Wharf as “a landmark 28-storey twisting tower in Battersea on the backs of the Thames”.

This “daring design” comprises 134 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses, with stunning views across London. Designed by “renowned architects” Patel Taylor, all apartments feature terraces that incorporate “a two-degree twist as they rise up the tower, creating an optical illusion of movement”. Residents will also benefit from a fitness suite, 24-hour concierge and high-specification appliances and finishes. Lombard Wharf “boasts an impressive double-height glazed residential lobby, a 7,470 sq ft riverfront retail unit and a generous public plaza.”

Lombard Wharf provides a rare chance to live on the banks of the River Thames, with coveted views across the Capital. Located just a few minutes’ walk from Battersea Park and Battersea Village Square, it puts residents “in easy reach of Kensington and Chelsea, just across the river”. With Wandsworth Council having granted permission for a Diamond Jubilee Bridge, commuting via the Overground network will be even easier, with Imperial Wharf station a “mere 600m away”. Construction of the footbridge foundations is due to start in summer 2016.
