Mace will lead the construction of three towers and a podium with retail and residential amenities. Gross development value is £480m. Mace's contract value was not disclosed.

Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the three Nine Elms Square towers will be the latest addition to Vauxhall’s skyscraper cluster. The buildings will range from 36 to 54 storeys, with 880 apartments across 11,555 sq m.

Nine Elms Square will provide access to the new linear park, stretching from the three towers to Battersea Power Station.

The whole Nine Elms Square scheme will consist of 12 buildings in total, with 1,900 new apartments.
