The re-developed site will provide 56 new homes including 15 one-bedroom apartments, 35 two-bedroom apartments and 6 three-bed apartments, significantly contributing to the supply of housing in Merton.

The mixture of housing provides homes for a range of people looking for housing including first-time buyers, those looking to right-size and families.

All homes have generous space standards and private amenity space, which is crucial in a post-pandemic world.

Within the development, six wheelchair accessible apartments are proposed over two floors accessible via DDA compliant lifts. These will be accompanied by five residential blue badge parking bays located under the podium in the courtyard.

The apartments on the ground floor along Rutlish Road and the tramline have been designed with individual stepped entrances and planting, promoting activity along the street frontage as well as replicating the individual properties along Rutlish Road.

Furthermore, the raised floor level and planted areas provide privacy from passersby as well as an attractive esthetic and appearance.
