Planning consent has been granted by Wandsworth Council Committee for Phase 3 of the Greenland Group’s redevelopment of Britain’s oldest brewery site into a new arts- and culture-led mixed-use destination for Wandsworth, Ram Quarter.
Phase 3 at Ram Quarter will deliver 50 high quality new homes, office and workshop space, and a number of public realm works that will connect to the new river walk alongside the River Wandle. It includes the restoration of Church Row Terrace, a Grade-II/II* listed terrace, and forms 16 of the 50 new homes.
Wenhao Qian, Managing Director for Greenland Group, said: “We are delighted that Wandsworth Council share our excitement for Ram Quarter and have granted consent to Phase 3 of the landmark project. We look forward to continuing to deliver our mixed-use development for Wandsworth and welcoming our first residents soon.”
Located in Wandsworth Town, between Armoury Way and Wandsworth High Street, the £600m Ram Quarter development consists of the transformation of the historic 4.5-acre Ram Brewery site into a residential, retail and leisure site.
Developer Greenland Group has converted the historic buildings into an innovative mixed-use scheme that also incorporates a number of modern and new-build features. Once completed, the development will consist of public retail boulevards, restaurants and open spaces, along with commercial premises and 663 private and affordable new homes, ranging from studios to four-bedroom duplex apartments.
The River Wandle, previously hidden behind the brewery walls, is now a central feature of the scheme, running alongside the open courtyard, with restaurants and cafés fronting onto a pedestrianised boulevard on the river.
Phase 1 at The Ram Quarter will complete in Q4, 2017.
