Hugo Black, partner at Sable Capital, said: “While wider market conditions are presenting certain challenges, demand for rented homes in London remains strong, with rents growing at their fastest pace on record.
“This is a fantastic site in a rapidly evolving area close to the iconic Battersea Power Station.
“We are looking forward to working with Covent Garden Market Authority and VINCI St Modwen to deliver new public realm connecting the US Embassy to the new Nine Elms station, as well as delivering 201 new homes for renters in zone 1.”
