Nine Elms, a swathe of London’s South Bank larger than Monaco, is set to become one of the most exciting neighbourhoods in the capital with the opening of Park Hyatt London River Thames Residences.

Park Hyatt London River Thames Residences and the surrounding area of Nine Elms is the kind of neighbourhood that can only exist when the world’s most visionary architects, developers, designers, craftspeople and place-makers collaborate to build something entirely new.

This prime, central London location has attracted billions of pounds of private sector investment and an area-wide regeneration plan that’s transforming the area on an extraordinary scale.

Dubbed London’s ‘mini-Manhattan’, Nine Elms is the 227 hectares of prime riverside between Vauxhall and Battersea –  larger than Monaco’s 208 ha – and it’s the last puzzle piece of London’s South Bank to undergo regeneration. Its completion early next year will mark the full rejuvenation of the district into a world class neighbourhood, and make Nine Elms and the Park Hyatt London River Thames Residences the most exciting place to live in London.

The Manhattan comparisons continue with Nine Elms own version of New York’s High Line.  The award-winning Linear Park, which winds from Vauxhall to Battersea, is a one kilometre long ribbon of parkland that can be cycled, run, walked – or even skated. This, in turn, connects to 3km of newly opened Thames path, making  previously out-of-bounds areas of the riverside accessible again.

What makes Nine Elms  regeneration all the more inspiring is that, until 2010, it was an industrial wasteland with obsolete gasworks, run down tower blocks, and less than favourable transport connections.

Today though, the area is firmly in London’s centre. This is thanks to clever planning, including the relocation of the American Embassy from Mayfair to Nine Elms in 2018, and the bold vision of developers like R&F Properties UK.

The area now has not one, but two Zone 1 tube stations. Vauxhall is on the Victoria Line, while Nine Elms forms part of the new Northern Line extension. These, plus river boat and road connections to the rest of London and the world, make getting around easy, though locals will find all of their immediate needs, and more, met locally.

The luxuriously designed 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments at Park Hyatt London River Thames Residences each have spectacular views across the city.

Placemaking is absolutely at the core of  the Nine Elms rejuvenation. The decade of planning and building that has gone into creating this new oasis of homes, parks, cultural hotspots, city landmarks and local amenities is already thriving, and will come to fruition with the opening of Park Hyatt London River Thames Residences in early 2024.

When it opens, the Park Hyatt Hotel, and above it 103 Park Hyatt branded residences will offer inhabitants the most luxurious homes in the district, complete with full access to the 5-star services offered by the hotel.  The one, two, and three bedroom apartments and penthouses that form Park Hyatt London River Thames Residences are finished to the highest possible design standards, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows to soak up incredible views across London in every direction.

“Our location is unrivalled, “ says Mr Guan, chairman of R&F.  “London’s finest art and culture hubs – from the Tate Britain to the V&A and the Royal Albert Hall to the West End – are all within easy reach, as well as leading educational institutions. Right on our doorstep we have Nine Elms Park, part of the Linear Park connecting us all the way to the lush Battersea Park and the thriving new retail destination, Battersea Power Station.”

In addition to the glorious Thames, the Nine Elms district has so much culture on its doorstep, residents of the Park Hyatt London River Thames Residences will be spoilt for choice moments from their door – though with services ranging from access to a gym, pool, room service and a dedicated lounge in their building, even that won’t always be necessary.

The Park Hyatt London River Thames Residences opens out onto the green space of Nine Elms Park, part of the 1km long Linear Park, which has been compared to New York's High Line.

When they do venture out, residents won’t have to travel far for a culture fix. With a music venue and cinema at Battersea Power Station, a local night out is easy.  Cricket fans will find the Kia Oval is just a short hop away. For those who crave green space, Battersea Park’s 80 ha oasis is just beyond Battersea Power Station, and offers a lake, sporting facilities, a children’s zoo and the Pump House Gallery. Moments in the other direction are the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, complete with a small farm.

Damian Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery is also in nearby Vauxhall, as is Brunswick House, the Grade II* Georgian Mansion created for the Duke of Brunswick in 1758, and which houses a Lassco architectural salvage store, perfect for discovering historic interiors gems.

The conditions for culture to flourish in this emerging new quarter of central London, has already attracted fashion businesses such as Vivienne Westwood and Philip Treacy to set up their headquarters in the area. The area’s rich history also has its part to play.

Once upon a time Nine Elms was most famous for New Covent Garden Market, the vast hub for produce and flower sellers to buy their wares. Luckily for the soon-to-be-new residents at Park Hyatt London River Thames Residences, this historic market has a new site in Nine Elms, where foodies and interiors buffs alike can, if they are up early – or late - enough, pick up whatever their heart desires.
