St James launch final stage of Riverlight development on Southbank

1st April 2014

St James, Riverlight, Nine Elms, Winter Gardens

Located at the heart of the Nine Elms on the South Bank regeneration area, the riverfront project was the first to top out and will be the first to welcome occupiers this summer.

Riverlight Five will be 12 stories high with 10 levels offered for residential, a total of 74 apartments and penthouses, many offering dramatic views of the river. Initial occupations within the development are planned from Q3 2014, with final completion scheduled for 2017. The emphasis of the development is on the lifestyle it affords, with each of the six modern and elegant pavilions designed to maximise sunlight within and optimise the views out.

With each pavilion ranging in height from 12 to 20 storeys, there are no more than seven apartments per floor accessed by glass-walled elevators on the outside of each building in signature Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners style. Over 75% of the development footprint is dedicated to open space with a riverside walkway and park, private gardens, water features and a piazza. There is also a vibrant mix of retail and leisure facilities including an exclusive residents' clubhouse featuring a gym, pool and spa, as well as bars and restaurants which will offer al fresco spaces to relax in and enjoy.

Nine Elms is an exciting new district which is one of the capital's most significant regeneration projects. The Royal College of Art Project Space which will be installed at Riverlight and other projects like Damien Hirst's new gallery and The New Covent Garden Market are further establishing the area as a vibrant hub which is building on London's international cultural reputation. Located in Zone 1, there are a range of transport options and the proposed Northern Line extension with two new underground stations will further facilitate easy access to London and beyond.

Sean Ellis, Chairman of St James, comments: "Riverlight is at a very exciting stage with unrivalled design by the critically acclaimed Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, views of the river and incredible outside areas such as the Royal College of Art project space, it is fast becoming the most desirable place to live in Nine Elms."
