Green light for timber housing tower
Plans for a six-storey housing block made of timber have been approved for Wimbledon town centre.
The fifteen apartments, three townhouses and a commercial unit at street level will be constructed using CLT (Cross Laminated Timber).
Architect Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios said the design had to incorporate lightweight construction materials due to a London Underground tunnel located directly under the site.
Construction is due to start on site later this year with completion due by mid 2017.
