York Place

Battersea, London

York Place provides a new Battersea headquarters for the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), 299 mixed-tenure homes and an improved public realm as part of the area's wider regeneration.

The RAD complex, including a student library and public cafe, sits at ground level with three residential buildings rising from a landscaped single-storey podium above.

At 24-storeys, Coda is the striking centrepiece at the heart of York Place. Delivered in partnership with property developer Avanton, Coda will provide 130 homes for private sale when complete.

Two mansion blocks flank Coda, together providing 169 PRS and discounted PRS homes for affordable housing provider, A2 Dominion.

A 14-metre set-back from York Road allows for a new public promenade that creates a welcoming approach to the ground floor activities, while rejuvenating a tired stretch of York Road.

York Place is currently on site, with completion expected in Spring 2021.
