UK: Developer Viewranks Estates has been granted planning permission to build a £60 million coliiving schemeon the site of two retail units in Kingston, south-west London.

The scheme, called Nineyards Kingston, will comprise a 200-unit coliving scheme designed by Assael Architecture on the site of former PC World and Sports Direct retail outlets.

Richard Beim, managing director of Viewranks Estates, said: “We’re delighted that our first and flagship development for Nineyards Living has been given the green light. Our company invests in high growth areas of London, and Kingston is the first of three sites where we are looking to deliver high-quality co-living accommodation.”

Tim Chapman-Cavanagh, director at Assael Architecture, added: “Having lived in the borough for over 15 years, our vision from the outset has been to keep the vibrancy we’re all used to in the town centre. The development not only offers new homes to help retain talent in the borough, but also brings in people and activity, alongside increasingly important co-working and homeworking opportunities that enables residents and the local community to easily separate home life from work without the need to travel to the office.”
