Past Projects

WESTERN ROAD, L.B. MERTON

Information

Planning permission was granted by the London Borough of Merton in September 2016 on what had been an industrial site in multi-occupation. Although the site had historically been designated as an employment site, detailed planning consent was granted for a development consisting of 32 one and two bed flats and eleven 3 bed houses, with 40% of the units being affordable. The site is being delivered by London & Quadrant Housing Association.

LONDON ROAD, NORBURY LB CROYDON

Information

This proposal involved the development of a 13,000 sq.ft. retail unit on the ground floor (occupied by Lidl) with sixteen s/c residential units above on an industrial site in Norbury Town Centre, LB Croydon. Among the many constraints and challenges that had to be overcome with this project were not only the site's planning designation for employment/industrial use but also the fact that the site was in multi-ownership and occupancy, with varying types of tenancies. Additionally, a significant level of ground contamination was also found to be present due to the site's historic use for the repair and maintenance of vehicles, and which also had to be dealt with during the redevelopment process.

SOUTH GROVE, LB WALTHAM FOREST

Information

This proposal was for a development of 183 residential units (25 affordable) with buildings up to eight storeys and approx. 5,000 sq.ft. of retail space on the ground floor. Having an area of 1.5 acres, this site had previously been an industrial estate in multi-ownership and was well connected being close to Walthamstow High Street and St James Street Station. Having been identified for redevelopment and regeneration in the Walthamstow Town Centre Area Action Plan, detailed planning consent was granted by Waltham Forest's Planning Committee in April 2016.

PURLEY WAY, LB CROYDON

Information

This 1.8 acre site on the Purley Way (A23) in LB Croydon had historically been used as a car breaker's yard and numerous issues had to be overcome before it could be redeveloped into its current use as a retail park and drive-thru restaurant. As well as fronting a trunk road at a busy traffic junction, the site was heavily contaminated with the presence of an ultra-high voltage electricity underground cable, numerous industrial occupiers and the requirement to ensure 24 hour emergency access to adjacent railway line also each presenting significant additional constraints. Planning consent was eventually granted for 21,000 sq.ft. of retail accommodation (pre-let to Magnet and Pets at Home) with McDonalds occupying the drive-thru restaurant. Upon completion the investment was sold to a fund.

LONDON ROAD, MORDEN LB MERTON

Information

This building, although purchased as an investment, was also located very close to Morden Underground Station (Northern Line) and within an area identified by the local authority as a potential redevelopment area. Comprising a 33,000 sq.ft. supermarket on the ground floor (let J Sainsburys), the upper parts comprised 13,000 sq.ft. of office accommodation let to a newspaper group. Upon acquisition, the lease to Sainsbury was regeared and the rent reviewed whilst a surrender was taken on the upper parts, with the freehold eventually being purchased by an investment fund.
