In pictures: London’s £15bn Nine Elms development
London is currently home to some of the most innovative and ambitious regeneration projects the UK has ever seen, such as the developments underway at Earls Court, Old Oak Common and the former Olympic Park.
But even these major projects pale in comparison to the development that is underway on the capital’s south bank.
Costing around £15bn and covering 482 acres of space, Nine Elms is one the largest regeneration projects in Europe, let alone London.
At the heart of Nine Elms sits the well documented rejuvenation of Battersea Power Station, which alone is considered ‘the greatest riverside development opportunity in Central London’.
But Nine Elms is about a lot more than just Battersea Park.
The area will also be home to a brand new and stunning US Embassy, as well as the beautifully Embassy Gardens and 21,000 new homes. There will also be a total of 6.5 million sq ft of commercial space to meet the ambition of making the area an internationally significant business district.
The project was further boosted by recent news that plans for the redevelopment of the 40 year old New Covent Garden Market have been approved, as well as the creation of two underground stations on the Northern Line.
Some sections of the development have already been completed, while the Battersea Park, US Embassy and Embassy Gardens sections are currently under construction, with the entire project set to be finished in around 20 years.
However there can be no doubt that when Nine Elms is finished, we will see a very different picture of London’s south bank.
