Description of London Square Wandsworth
London Square Wandsworth is a mixed-use development that will transform a fomer B&Q superstore site on 3.43 acres in central Wandsworth, London SW18.
The large warehouse-style store will be replaced with 13 new housing blocks containing 517 new homes and more than 8,000m2 of business, retail and restaurant space.
The scheme includes 184 affordable homes – representing 35 per cent of the total number being built.
A minimum of 52 units will be offered for low cost rent with rents starting in the region of £120 a week inclusive of any service charge.
All will have access to private outdoor amenity space including balconies, winter gardens or a terrace. The developers will also be creating an outdoor playground for young children.
The developer is planning to plant a total of 174 new trees to replace 50 that would be lost during construction. In total the finished site will contain 192 trees including 18 already growing there that will not be affected by the works.
2018 January - Plans approved by Wandsworth Council.
