Make submits plans for 149m Vauxhall tower

Plans for a 149m-high mixed-use tower in Vauxhall, south London have been submitted by architects Make.

The proposed ‘Octave building’ would be located on a brownfield site on Bondway in Vauxhall and is within an area allocated for new tall buildings.

The scheme will contain 10 per cent employment use and 90 per cent residential accommodation. The 376 new homes will provide 30 per cent affordable and 70 per cent private housing.

A community floor at level 36 provides recreation, business and function spaces accessible to all residents. There will also be retail space on the ground floor.

Biomass boilers will provide 25 per cent renewable energy consumption and contribute to a 30 per cent overall reduction in carbon use.
