Planning consent was awarded to 58-70 York Road in 2018, a key island site on the York Road in Wandsworth. The current 1970s public house with surface car parking is surrounded by confused boundary conditions and poor quality public realm. As with so many post-industrial areas permeability is also poor which results in confused route finding and ultimately inactive streets. The public realm improvements pull together a number of routes while the presence of the building defines a legible sequence of events leading eventually to the river. The building contains 800 m sq of workspace and 83 flats ( 29 are affordable ) 35%.
