Scoping: 15 Storey Tower near Clapham Common

An Environmental Impact Assessment application has been submitted to Lambeth Council for a development of around 350 apartments in buildings up to 15 storeys located behind Lambeth College, at 44 Clapham Common South Side.

The development, nicknamed Project Seymour, would replace an existing waste transfer station, but don’t worry about garbage piling up – the scheme will also replace the existing facilities on site. Fancy living above that?!

Given this is a scoping opinion we don’t have any juicy renders for you, but we do have some cold hard facts: there’ll be up to 4,000sqm commercial space, and the waste transfer unit will be approximately 1,300sqm.

There will be 6 buildings, the smallest of which will be 5 storeys, followed by buildings of 6, 7, 9, 11 and climaxing in a 15 storey tower.

Parking will be provided for 135 vehicles, as well as for cycles and there will be an on site energy centre.

The 15 storey building would be the tallest in the area, with the urban grain locally being a mixture of Victorian terraces and mid-rise council flats.

The site will be accessed down an existing road just north of Lambeth College, and the buildings will be located one after each other down the size:

The developer appears to be the OCS Group, who ran the facility. It’s likely the development will be sold to a residential developer prior to works starting.
