Planning & Development Potential
The property benefits from a resolution to grant planning permission (ref: 16/15346) for “partial demolition of existing building to form a 10-storey building with retained retail (Class A1) and gymnasium (Class D2) and car parking. Erection of 91 residential dwellings (Class C3) with associated vehicular access, private and communal amenity space, public realm improvements, cycle parking and refuse storage. Provision of temporary car park (150 spaces) on adjoining land during construction works.”
The proposed development involves demolition of the offices at 1st and 2nd floors and the multi-storey car park and the construction of extensions of up to 9-storeys to create a new car park at 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors and 91 self-contained apartments across the 1st – 9th floors. The existing Lidl and Fitness First at ground floor will be retained by the Seller.
The scheme will create 5 x studio, 19 x 1 bedroom, 49 x 2 bedroom and 18 x 3 bedroom apartments totalling 64,352 sq.ft. NIA. A total of 258 parking spaces are proposed; 62 to service
the development, 80 to service New Malden House (the neighbouring building) and 116 for public use.
The planning consent is subject to a Section 106 Agreement with obligations for 28 apartments to be designated for affordable housing (14 affordable rent and 14 x shared ownership units), as well as a financial contribution of £134,946. A CIL liability of approximately £276,804 is applicable.
The property will be sold on a new lease of the residential element for a term of 250 years, subject to a peppercorn rent. The freeholder is The Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames.
