West Waddy Archadia (WWA) has created a planning and development Brief for the redevelopment of Stoll Mansions in Fulham has been launched to the market by Knight Frank. 

This strategic site, located between Fulham Broadway and Stamford Bridge (home of Chelsea FC), offers a significant opportunity for a high-density mixed-use development with excellent public transport links. The project is the culmination of over 12 months of work in master planning, consultation and concept design by the WWA team for this 1.75-acre site (see aerial image).

The development brief provides a coordinated and comprehensive approach to future development that can achieve greater economic, social and environmental value in the area. In addition to a high-quality design strategy, the site is expected to be highly sustainable, including minimising the use of natural resources, integrating renewable energy, sustainable transport measures and ecology. The site is located immediately next to Fulham Broadway tube station and has an exceptionally high public transport accessibility rating (PTAL).

The existing buildings at Stoll Mansions have reached the end of their lifespan, and comprehensive redevelopment is proposed. Stoll’s mission is to provide housing and support for those who have served in the Armed Forces and are disabled, vulnerable or infirm. Originally founded early in the 20th century, demand for Veterans’ housing is no longer focussed in London. As a charity, Stoll must deliver its objectives to those in need. Accordingly, the charity plans to retain the original listed frontage building (see facade image) facing Fulham Road and downsize its provision at Stoll Mansions, disposing of the majority of the site to enable investment in new facilities and Veterans support outside of central London.

Stoll remains at the forefront of housing and support for vulnerable ex-servicemen and women, and the existing dwellings are restricted to Veterans only. The proposed redevelopment will provide replacement Veterans’ accommodation plus affordable and open market housing at a significantly higher density than the existing low-rise scheme.

The Planning and Development brief prepared by WWA aims to provide a sustainable, high-quality exemplar residential-led mixed development. Our brief will guide prospective purchasers in developing proposals that meet national, GLA and Local Plan policies and the charity’s aspirations for the site.

WWA is acting as Project Manager, Planning and Design consultant for Stoll Foundation. Having completed our Planning and Development brief, the practice is working alongside selling agents Knight Frank during the marketing and bidding process.
