Coda Residences, 6 York Place, Battersea, London SW11

From a Draft Chapter 8 of the Survey of London:

“Several major establishments emerged during the eighteenth century— for instance the malthouses and distilleries of Messrs Bell at York Place and Hodgson at Bolingbroke House; the Battersea enamel factory at York House; and a tide-mill for grinding corn at Nine Elms.”


“Coda is a build-to-rent in South West London located at 6 York Place, Battersea, SW11 3JD, managed by Avanton. Its 299 units give tenants easy access to public transport systems, beneficial amenities and comfortable living spaces.”

From the website of Patel Taylor:

York Place, Battersea, London
York Place provides a new Battersea headquarters for the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), 299 mixed-tenure homes and an improved public realm as part of the area’s wider regeneration. The RAD complex, including a student library and public cafe, sits at ground level with three residential buildings rising from a landscaped single-storey podium above.
At 24-storeys, Coda is the striking centrepiece at the heart of York Place. Delivered in partnership with property developer Avanton, Coda will provide 130 homes for private sale when complete.
Two mansion blocks flank Coda, together providing 169 PRS and discounted PRS homes for affordable housing provider, A2 Dominion. A 14-metre set-back from York Road allows for a new public promenade that creates a welcoming approach to the ground floor activities, while rejuvenating a tired stretch of York Road.
York Place is currently on site, with completion expected in Spring 2021.

“Founded in 1920 to set standards for dance teaching, the Royal Academy of Dance soon gained its first royal patron, Queen Mary, and has retained its royal charter for over 90 years. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the RAD’s patron.

The RAD has developed training programmes for dance students and teachers, with nearly a quarter of a million young dancers around the world being examined on the RAD’s classical ballet syllabi. The academy’s mission is to promote and enhance the understanding and practice of dance globally. That all starts from its new home – at the base of Coda, Battersea.”
