One Battersea Bridge, the current Glassmill office building, is a brownfield site in Wandsworth. The building is energy inefficient, currently only at circa 50% occupancy and at the end of its lifecycle.
This underutilised building has the potential to create new homes that will help alleviate local housing pressures and ensure that a significant amount of truly affordable homes will be delivered for the local community.
The vision for the scheme is to provide a landmark building, designed by award-winning architects Farrells, that reflects the importance of its position alongside Battersea Bridge and as a gateway to Wandsworth.

One Battersea Bridge will be the cornerstone of the neighbourhood and complete the regeneration of the area. It will deliver significant improvements to the public realm that will reflect local priorities, including along the Thames Path, and create community and commercial spaces to create a vibrant neighbourhood bringing together the Royal College of Art and Foster + Partners campuses.
Without this proposal, less affordable housing will be delivered in Wandsworth and this site will continue to be underoccupied, underutilised, unsustainable, and suffer from a lack of connectivity with the wider community.
Like all London boroughs, Wandsworth is facing a housing crisis that can only be dealt with through new genuinely affordable homes for local people. Our proposal is for 35% of the housing to be affordable, addressing Wandsworth’s growing demand and diverse community needs.
Vision is for a comprehensive renovation of the Thames Path Walk, ensuring improved access for cyclists and pedestrians. Alongside this, a revamped streetscape on Battersea Bridge Road will be introduced to provide functional and accessible public spaces for the local community.
With our sustainable approach, we plan to transition the site from its current energy inefficiencies to a model of green architecture. The emphasis will be on optimising vacant spaces, enhancing energy efficiency, and reviving the ground floor with commercial spaces that meet modern sustainable standards. The introduction of green spaces and urban greening measures will further contribute to an environmentally responsible redevelopment.
Beyond the addition of high-quality, flexible office spaces tailored for SME businesses and ground-floor amenities like restaurants and community spaces, our vision is to foster community bonds. By facilitating shared spaces and interactive locales, we aim to bring the local community together, nurturing a sense of belonging and interconnectivity within this vibrant, integrated neighbourhood.
