The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham local authority has granted planning permission to property group A2 Dominion for the redevelopment of Queen's Wharf on the North bank of the River Thames.14 Jan 2013
A2 Dominion's plans are for a building of four to seven storeys comprising 81 residential properties, cafés, restaurants, car parking and landscaping. The development is located in a conservation area adjacent to the Grade II listed Hammersmith Bridge. Queen's Wharf is currently comprised of a derelict four-storey office building of 7,500 square metres. A2 Dominion intends to demolish the existing derelict office building and replace it with a building that rises from four storeys on the Crisp Road frontage to seven storeys on the river side.
The redeveloped Queen's Wharf site will include 676 square metres of cafés and restaurants on the ground floor fronting the river, as well as 81 residential units made up of a mix of 26 one-bedroom, 46 two-bedroom, 9 three-bedroom apartments and eight affordable housing units. The plans also envisage the creation of a six metre riverside walkway.
“We’re pleased to have been granted permission for the redevelopment of Queens Wharf, which will enable this prominent riverside site to be brought back into use," said Danny Lynch, A2 Dominion's London development director said in a statement on the company's website. “The scheme, located close to the historic Hammersmith Bridge, has been carefully designed to deliver quality homes which will be built to meet Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.”
