Chinese developer Greenland Group has gained planning for phase 3 of its £600m redevelopment of the historic 4.5-acre Ram Brewery site in south London.
Phase 3 of the redevelopment of Britain’s oldest brewery site will see 50 new homes, office and workshop space, and public realm works to connect to the new river walk alongside the Wandle in Wandsworth.
The project also includes the restoration of a Grade-II* listed terrace that is one of Wandsworth’s finest architectural assets. The row of houses will form 16 of the 50 new homes.
In previous phases, Greenland Group has also undertaken the restoration of the original Ram Brewery site, which will be turned into a heritage centre and microbrewery, the Coopers Lofts, which are being sensitively converted in just 14 warehouse-style residences and also the reimagining of the old brewery stables, which will form part of phase 2.
Contractor Ardmore secured the £170m phase 1 of the scheme, which involves building 338 of the 663 planned new homes and is due to be completed later this year.
Along with a strong retail, leisure and residential offering, Ram Quarter will also include a heritage centre, which will display some of the original machinery that had been in use when the site was a full-time brewery, and a microbrewery to continue the site’s 500-year tradition.
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.
