MDR are delighted to announce the successful determination of one of our most prominent schemes, Blagdon Road, New Malden, continuing our very successful start to 2018.
Due to the existing complexities of the site, the 91 unit scheme required a significant level of design development and close working relationships with the Council, Pegasus planning consultants and the wider community to secure the approval.
The proposed will see the partial demolition of the existing 8 storey building with retained retail (Class A1), gymnasium (Class D2) and car parking and the erection of 91 residential dwellings (Class C3) with associated vehicular access, private and communal amenity space and public realm improvements. The ground floor is currently occupied by leasehold tenants who will retain continuous, un-interrupted occupation for the duration of any construction works.
The approval paves way for a substantial redevelopment of the area, providing much needed, high quality residential accommodation as part of The Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames future Cocks Crescent SPD. The complexity of the build required a highly creative approach to design combined with a comprehensive technical method, resulting in a very well received mixed used project.
