Henley Fusion Ltd’s mixed use of beds and sheds at the Albert and Swedish Wharf, Fulham, was approved by the Hammersmith and Fulham (H&F) Planning Committee.

The proposal is to demolish all existing buildings and structures and construct new buildings ranging from five to 17 storeys in height.

 The new buildings include a safeguarded wharf for flexible general industrial / storage or distribution floorspace for waterborne cargo handling, including ancillary office accommodation at ground and mezzanine levels. In addition to the industrial space, residential dwellings and ancillary communal floorspace above, a cafe/restaurant is in the upper courtyard.

 The development includes:

  • A new Thames Path with associated lift/stair access.
  • A new jetty.
  • Communal and private amenity space and landscaping.
  • Vehicular access and servicing facilities.
  • Car and cycle parking.
  • Plant and all associated ancillary and enabling works.

The provision of 276 new homes includes 35 per cent affordable housing. The proposed housing and tenure mix were acceptable, as was the standard of accommodation provided for prospective occupiers.

The development is on the Wandsworth Bridge Road adjacent to the Hurlingham Retail Park development (covered here) on what has become prime riverside space.

The architects were EPR Architects, and the project manager was Buro Four.
