Albion Riverside, Battersea SW11
Albion Riverside is a grand, impressive building containing some of the river’s most exclusive and sought-after residences. The development has won several prestigious awards, including the National Home Builder Award and the Civic Trust Commendation.
Much more than a residential building, Albion Riverside is a mixed-use development designed to promote an atmosphere where people can live, work, relax and enjoy life in a beautiful part of London. Shops, business spaces and leisure facilities are located at ground level, with parking below and apartments above.
With 183 apartments and 12 duplex penthouses, this stylish building dominates the riverbank, offering luxury riverside living with spectacular views across the River Thames and towards Chelsea Embankment. The apartments are contemporary and open plan in style, and have generous balconies designed to accommodate outside dining and socialising.
Designed by award-winning architects Foster + Partners, and completed in 2003 for Hutchinson Whampoa Property, Albion Riverside stands right on the waterfront at an impressive 11 storeys high. The building’s façade is principally glass with a supporting net of fine aluminium rods designed to mimic the water by shimmering in the sunlight. River-facing apartments have curved balconies with glass balustrades, plus floor-to-ceiling windows which slide back to allow the apartments to open out onto the water.
Albion Riverside is located on the site of the old Battersea bus garage on the southern bank of the Thames, between Battersea Bridge and Albert Suspension Bridge. It’s just a few miles from Westminster and within easy walking distance of the King’s Road area. As such, it has impressive views across the water towards the City.
As well as being ideally situated to enjoy all the shopping amenities that King’s Road and Westminster has to offer, Albion Riverside is within walking distance of some great pubs and restaurants. The Prince Albert on Albert Bridge Road and The Duchess on Battersea Park Road are both traditional pubs that offer a warm welcome. Augustine Kitchen is a popular French restaurant serving up delicious, seasonal dishes just off Battersea Bridge Road.
There are plenty of good transport links nearby, including train stations at Battersea Park and Imperial Wharf. Victoria is reachable within 10 minutes. The nearest tube stations are Sloane Square and South Kensington, both just a short walk away. Regular bus services include the 19 to Finsbury Park, the 49 to Clapham Junction, and the 239 to Victoria.
