Reselton Properties Ltd the subsidiary of Singapore Stock Exchange quoted City Developments Limited (CDL) has submitted a planning application for a £1.25 billion mixed use development on the 22-acre Stag Brewery site in Mortlake which is one of the largest Thames-side sites in south west London.
At the same time the developer is in the process of appointing project managers to handle the pre-demolition, strip and demolition works and the ongoing phased construction of the project.
The project designed by architects Squire & Partners opens up the currently enclosed site with a comprehensive regeneration of the brewery that will form a key part of Mortlake’s future.
The planning application submitted to the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames includes:
A mix of uses creating a traditional commercial high street feel for the benefit of the surrounding Mortlake community that comprises some 20 units for shops, bars, restaurants, a gym, together with a hotel, cinema and rowing club.
Nine acres of green space with numerous squares, all with public access, provide the focus for the residential accommodation which surrounds them. A new green link connects the existing Mortlake Green with the River Thames.
A new secondary school for 1,200 pupils together with a full-sized football pitch (also available for community use), as well as indoor multi-use gym, play and sports space.
3,000 sq m of offices providing space for existing and new local small businesses.
· 667 homes to be built across the site. These are a mix of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bed homes, private and affordable. The scheme also proposes a care village, containing up to 150 assisted living units and an additional care home with dementia care. All residential buildings will have underground parking.
An extensive package of road junction improvements at Chalkers Corner designed to mitigate the additional trip generation of the proposed development and improve air quality for existing residents.
Michael Squire of Squire & Partners, said: “over the last 18 months, we have worked closely with the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames planning department, the GLA and local residents’ community groups to create a scheme that will be a truly valuable addition to the local community and gives full public access to a beautiful and important section of the River Thames. As a result of its generous mix of uses, the scheme enriches the wider area rather than delivering an independent housing estate disconnected from its existing context.
“The scheme’s submission follows an extensive public consultation exercise including exhibitions, public meetings and liaison with local community groups, where we have sought and taken into account the views of the local community,” adds Squire.
The design has been developed with input from the adopted 2011 London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames development brief for the site along with national planning policy guidance.
Reselton bought the site from ABInBev – better known as Anheuser Busch in November 2015.
