The final two proposed buildings at Fulham Reach, Hammersmith have been approved at committee by Hammersmith and Fulham Council.
The original hybrid application was approved in 2011, comprising a masterplan for 744 new homes to create a riverside neighbourhood in a prominent location by the River Thames, to the East of Hammersmith Bridge.
The approval of Building B2 and Plot C are the final phase in JTP's masterplan, and will complete the delivery of the collaborative vision for this brownfield site.
Each building is designed to reflect the local area’s character and delivers a wide range of sizes and types of homes. Building B2 and Plot C will deliver 88 apartments and four 4 bed townhouses respectively.
Building B2 was designed with an urban aesthetic with robust masonry, emulating its sister, Building D, and forming a gateway to the development. Plot C is designed as four elegant townhouses with primary brick material and stone base complementing the traditional London townhouse aesthetic.
The first three buildings at Fulham Reach - Distillery Wharf, Brunswick House and Goldhurst House - have now been delivered. Faulkner House, the next in the sequence, is due to be completed later this year, and the construction of the second phase of Faulkner House and Henley House will commence later this month.
Further information about Fulham Reach:
The masterplan for Fulham Reach was established to complement the surrounding context; the new homes are placed around a series of connected public streets and spaces, including a landscaped central boulevard linking Frank Banfield Park to a new riverside park and reinstated pedestrian route along the Thames. Over half the site will be public open space.
Fulham Reach is in close proximity to Hammersmith with its range of facilities and transport links, benefiting from a south facing aspect towards the Harrods Furniture Depository, and overlooking Frank Banfield Park to the north. A range of ground floor mixed uses include restaurants, retail, flexible ground floor employment space, and a community boat club which works with local schools.
229 of the new homes have now been delivered, as well as the Fulham Reach Boat Club and the riverside walkway. Two new businesses will also be opening at Fulham Reach later in 2017. Raymond Blanc’s Brasserie Blanc will be located on the ground floor of Goldhurst House and Bing Pilates studio will open in Brunswick House.
Fulham Reach also features two unique sculptures by local artists, commissioned by St George who wanted to embed the new buildings in their cultural context. A shortlist of ten local artists were sought by Hammersmith and Fulham council, two were chosen to create bespoke public pieces for residents and visitors to enjoy.
