US residential developer Greystar is set to build a luxury rental development in Nine Elms in partnership with Telford Homes.

Greystar snapped up two plots from Royal Mail in a £101m deal.

The development, which will include 894 apartments, will provide a "five-star rental experience" with amenities including residents’ lounges, bars and restaurants, an observatory deck, a business hub, gyms and a 24-hour concierge.

The apartments will be within walking distance of two new underground stations on the extended Northern Line and a footbridge across the River Thames will connect the site with the north bank.

"Greystar is a prominent investor so the deal will also help us securing major opportunities such as this."
