Wandsworth Council has voted to grant 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 architects, dn-a and developed by Landid, The Parklife Building will transform the existing 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 much needed commercial floorspace to the area, and will set new standards of character and quality for businesses in Putney.

With a focus on creating a connected community, the building will provide 7,000 sq ft of flexible public retail space fronting onto the park, as well as occupier amenities such as: 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 said: “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 said; “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.”

“The architecture is sympathetic and respectful to its surroundings, yet contemporary in its execution. High quality architectural detailing and materials and sustainable design are intrinsic to our proposal to create a highly desirable workplace.”

The Parklife Building will start on site in early 2017, with an 18-month build period and expected completion date of June 2018.
