Wandsworth Council has granted planning permission for a vibrant new, high quality office building overlooking the Grade II listed Wandsworth Park with views of the River Thames on the corner of Putney Bridge and Deodar Road.
Designed by dn-a architects and developed by Landid, The Parklife Building will transform the current site, a c. 40,000 sq ft vacant office building, into a 80,000 sq ft, design led and user focused urban workplace.
It will provide the area with much needed commercial floor space, and will set new standards of character and quality for businesses in Putney.
With a focus on creating a connected community, the building will offer 7,000 sq ft of flexible public retail space fronting onto the park, along with occupier amenities including: cycle and shower facilities, on-site yoga lessons and multiple cafes. The office building extends to five storeys and boasts terraces on every floor, making the most of the spectacular park setting.
Claire Hammond (née Freeland), Development Director at Landid commented: “Landid is thrilled to be involved in this exciting development opportunity in Putney. Putney has lost a significant amount of commercial space as a result of permitted development rights, and there is a lack of Grade A floorspace. The Parklife Building will have everything we look for in a workspace – including excellent connectivity, amenity, and character within a very special setting.
“We have already had a number of very positive discussions with national and local occupiers looking for good quality office space in Putney. We are confident The Parklife Building will draw a range of new occupiers to this attractive part of south-west London and provide the calibre of workspace that has a positive impact on business performance, including staff attraction and retention, productivity, wellness and more.”
Nick Troullides, Director at dn-a added: “Our architectural approach is to deliver a high quality design which creates a much improved office building to attract occupiers and enhance the existing streetscape.”
