Construction firm Mace has been tasked with building three towers as part of the major redevelopment of land next to the US embassy at Nine Elms.
The contractor will be in charge of the first phase of the Nine Elms Square project, which involves building the towers as well as a podium for retail and residential provisions. The contract has a gross redevelopment value of £480m.
The three buildings will range from 36 to 54 storeys high, providing 880 homes. The job is Mace’s first for developer R&F Properties.
Mace’s chief operating officer for construction Gareth Lewis said: “We are proud to take on the challenge of delivering part of Vauxhall’s latest iconic residential development, at the beginning of what we hope will be a long and successful relationship with R&F Properties.
“We will use our experience in building some of London’s most complex and challenging projects to make the client’s vision a reality and deliver the three architecturally outstanding towers at Nine Elms Square.”
Nine Elms Square will provide access to the so-called Linear Park, stretching from the three towers to Battersea Power Station, connecting two of the highest profile regeneration schemes in the capital.
Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the three Nine Elms Square towers will be the latest addition to Vauxhall’s growing cluster of skyscrapers.
The whole Nine Elms Square scheme will consist of 12 buildings in total, creating 1,900 new homes in the area.
