No. 8 – One Thames City

The ground-breaking ceremony for Number 8 was held in July 2018 and since then, the development is taking place at a faster pace. Guan Zhixiong, Chairman of R&F Group UK, said: “Urban regeneration is at the heart of R&F’s DNA and our aspiration is for One Thames City to bring even more life to Nine Elms. We believe One Thames City will set a new standard globally for mixed-use projects.

Councillor Ravi Govindia, Leader of Wandsworth Council, said, “I am pleased that this development brings future opportunities for all of us – the jobs and apprenticeships for local people, the homes, offices, retail units and health centre which will open here, and the 14,000 sq metres of greenery and new public space that this significant section of the Linear Park will provide. R&F have put this part of Wandsworth, this part of London and this part of the United Kingdom on the map of the world.”

The project shows strong performance…

Despite the reports of the market being slowed down for luxury properties amidst COVID-19 led turmoil in the UK, R&F claims to make sales worth £100million in 2021. It is a positive and strong performance by anyone’s standard as it indicates the strong demand for luxury properties in London

apartments in One Thames City.

R&F Properties said: “We have exchanged contracts to sell almost £100 million of property in the United Kingdom in 2021, which is a strong performance by anyone’s standards. Sales continue to be strong, with a good pipeline of transactions due to also complete before the end of the year - buoyed by the recent opening of the Northern line extension - and we look forward to welcoming our first residents to Thames City next summer.” “As of November 2021, it is categorically untrue to state that more than half of our UK sales are related party transactions,” he added further.

Nine Elms – A thriving zone in London

Nine Elms is a regeneration zone in London, United Kingdom, where you can find a wide array of skyscrapers, restaurants, cafes and recreational spots. The new US Embassy is located here and also proudly boasts the most lauded Battersea Power Station. It is also home to the growing local community living together in different types of homes. The houses vary differently in terms of quality and prices because the former industrial area has undergone redevelopments to offer some 20,000 new homes – out of which 4,000 homes are dubbed affordable homes.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has appreciated the affordability factor of Nine Elms, and described Wandsworth as a fantastic example of London borough that’s building the homes that local community members need.
