After months of planning and preliminary design, it is expected that architecture firm KPF will be given permission to proceed with their New Bondway project in Vauxhall, London. This residential complex is sited in the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area, in close proximity to the new US embassy. The property was previously to be the site for the Octave Tower designed by Make architects, until the proposal was rejected by the Secretary of State.

KPF's New Bondway will be comprised of two towers, the tallest one being almost 170 meters tall. The project will host 540 apartments, 90 of which will be affordable housing. A bridge connecting the two towers will host some 5,171 square meters of office space, and 675 square meters of the ground floor will be given over to retail. The building application for this project has passed the Lambeth planning committee, and awaits approval from both the Secretary of State and the Mayor of London.
