Barratt London hosted a topping out ceremony at Lombard Wharf today (February 2) to mark the end of major construction on the building.

The landmark 28-story building in Lombard Road, Battersea, was designed by local architects Patel Taylor.

The twisting tower on the banks of the Thames will comprise one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses upon completion.

Of those, 27 homes will be available through shared ownership.

Ed McCoy, Sales Director, Barratt London, commented: "We are very excited to be celebrating this stage in the building programme for Lombard Wharf.

"We hope the building will be a great addition to this part of the riverside and its iconic design together with its location, just a short walk from Clapham Junction, should also make it very popular with those looking to move into the area."

Members of Wandsworth Council attended, including council leader Ravi Govindia. 

Cllr Ravi Govindia said: "This exciting development not only provides much-needed new shared ownership homes, but also opens up a new stretch of the Thames Path and lays the foundations for a new bridge across the river.

"The Diamond Jubilee Bridge is a key element in opening up this formerly industrial part of Battersea to local people, welcoming new affordable housing, new businesses and jobs, and new investment as part of the Greater London Authority’s Clapham Junction to Battersea Riverside Housing Zone."

Pankaj Patel, Director at Patel Taylor, said: "We are very pleased to see Lombard Wharf shaping up into an elegantly crafted riverside landmark.

"Its twisting sculptural silhouette creates a fluid shimmering illusion of movement in this waterside setting and the combination of new homes, exemplary design and generous public realm, will create a new destination in Wandsworth, drawing people towards and reconnecting the local community to the riverfront.”
