The month of June celebrates London architecture, including the regeneration around Nine Elms Point.
Barratt London’s Nine Elms Point development is part of the “greatest transformational story at the heart of the world’s great city”. Celebrating the regeneration of the area, Nine Elms on the South Bank is hosting a series of events throughout June, as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2015 (LFA).
The event takes place from 1 – 30 June, and celebrates architecture credentials in the Capital. The theme for 2015 is fittingly “work in progress”, and over 30 schemes – either in planning or under construction in the Nine Elms area – are showcasing their striking, modern addition to London’s South Bank. Residents at Nine Elms Point can visit the various events and find out more about the exciting regeneration around their new home, with most of the events taking place just under a ten-minute walk away from Nine Elms Point.
Events over the month include an architectural guided walk looking at the heritage of the area, a panel discussion exploring the challenges of building a mix of residential of commercial developments, an architecturally themed pub quiz commissioned for Nine Elms, and more.
Previously an industrial part of London, the area is undergoing a vast regeneration to create a new central London district, and Barratt London’s Nine Elms Point is helping to transform the Nine Elms area. Located next to the new Nine Elms underground station, and described by Time and Leisure Magazine as “seven metallic buildings designed by architect Broadyway Malyan to reflect the site’s history as a foundry, including a 37-storey tower that will be Barratt London’s tallest residential structure to date”. The development is made up of 645 one-bedroom suites, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses and includes a fitness suite, concierge, private dining room and business facilities. Residents will also benefit from the convenience of a new flagship Sainsbury’s below the development.
