Apartments in St George Wharf SW8

St George Wharf is a landmark riverside development spanning across 7 acres of London’s hottest area of regeneration, and conveniently, just moments from London’s Vauxhall Underground Station. Initially rising 22 storeys but now with the addition of the 48 storey Tower, the tallest sole residential building in the UK, St George Wharf is a focal point of the South Bank. The main development is easily identifiable by its gull-wing roofs and stylish terraces; Broadway Malyan Architects had a willingness to champion innovation and as such have designed an original and expressive building with a fantastic attention to detail. Riverside living does not get much better than this.

Residents of this SW8 development, St George Wharf, often comment on its sense of community, with a stunning series of landscaped courtyards and elegant fountains creating an idyllic rural atmosphere in the heart of central London. St George Wharf combines this serene courtyard with state of the art facilities; amenities include a supermarket, restaurant and bar, an NHS Doctors, dentist, a 24hr gymnasium and a spa offering a wide variety of treatments.

In keeping with the green ethos of the development, the newly completed Tower will require one third of the energy currently used by similar buildings. Specifically, One, The Tower will house a wind turbine to power common lighting areas and a London Aquifer (complete with heat pump technology) to extract warmth from water to heat apartments during the winter. Triple-glazed windows throughout minimise heat loss in winter whilst ventilated blinds between the glazing protects apartments from heat through direct sunlight.

Not only is St George Wharf a peaceful environment in the heart of the capital, it’s also a safe one. With apartments accessible to a 24 hour concierge service, CCTV and a video entry system into each property, safety and security in the development was paramount in the developer’s approach. 

Apartments vary from studios to luxury 5 bedroom penthouses, all finished to the highest specification. The breath-taking river views and fantastic transport links ensure St George Wharf is the best of both worlds in terms of luxury and necessity. With Vauxhall Underground Station right on your doorstep Victoria, Green Park and Oxford Circus stations are all just minutes away. The nearby Vauxhall Rail Station means areas such as Waterloo and Clapham Junction are also easily accessible.


History

Building began on Vauxhall Bridge in 1813 with the honorary first brick laid by Prince Charles (the eldest son of the late Duke of Brunswick). The bridge was completed in 1816, just three years later, consisting of nine cast-iron arches, with piers formed by a wooden frame as a foundation, faced with Kentish ragstone and Roman cement. This bridge opened up the area to the south of the Thames, linking to the Houses of Parliament and Courts of Law. In the early 1970’s Vauxhall almost saw a spate of skyscrapers arise,  a series of buildings of heights reaching 450ft were approved along the Thames only for the 1973 oil crisis to quash such development. Vauxhall continued to push for regeneration but with much fighting over the area (including two public inquiries) plans for high-rise developments were consistently dismissed. However, it is now this site that has been bought and developed into the fantastic St George Wharf. Finally, the Nine Elms area is seeing the regeneration it deserves.
