223 Southwark Park Road Opportunity

Made in Bermondsey
  • the council has recently acquired the former Thorowgoods furniture store at 223 Southwark Park Road, which is an anchor site in the heart of The Blue town centre, forming a key gateway into the market place
  • the council and partners have secured £2m from the Mayor of London to invest in infrastructure to revitalize The Blue town centre, with a focus on improving the market place.
  • The Blue is an historic market place and high street in the heart of Bermondsey, one stop on the Jubilee line from London Bridge, walking distance from the Thames, and at a strategic hub between the Old Kent Road, Canada Water and Bermondsey Spa regeneration areas
  • close by, The Blue stands to benefit from the significant footfall and investment into the Spa Terminus, Biscuit Factory and Low Line projects
  • in June 2019, a design team led locally based Hayatsu with Assemble architects were appointed as designers to transform the market and the wider town centre based on their Made in Bermondsey proposal
  • we're looking to find an experienced operator for 223 Southwark Park Road with a track record of running successful and sustainable commercial operations to create a vibrant destination unit at the heart of the town centre
  • download a copy of the brief for the site from this link (pdf, 12mb) and get in touch with your ideas
  • to help give operators the best possible briefing, we're arranging tours with a briefing on the building and the regeneration plans for the area; to book on to a tour, find out more or make an offer on the building contact Dan Taylor in the regeneration team at dan.taylor@southwark.gov.uk or 02075255450
