Wandsworth Council's planning applications committee has voted to approve developer Bellway Homes' plans for a 510-home mixed-use development on the site of the Christie's Fine Arts Warehouse in London's Nine Elms, according to a report in the Estates Gazette .

Under the scheme, existing warehouse buildings on the 1.09 hectare site will be demolished and replaced with two blocks, one for residential use only and one for mixed residential and commercial uses.

The proposed eastern block ranges in height between two and 19 storeys. It will provide 320 homes for private sale and up to 1,352 square metres of flexible commercial space. The proposed western block ranges in height between four and 13 storeys. It will provide 190 homes, 76 of which will be affordable and the remaining 114 are intended for private rental.

A further £10,000,000 payment is proposed to support the provision of affordable housing in the borough.

Each block will include communal gardens, cycle parking and ground floor car parking garages. The plans also include new public space and landscaping.

The plans were on the agenda for consideration at a meeting  of the Council's planning applications committee on 17 June, having been recommended by a planning officer for approval with conditions, subject to approval from the mayor of London.
