Site of the week: Manor Place
Fri 28th February 2014, 9:23 am
The London Borough of Southwark is bringing a site to the market comprising a three storey terrace of 10 shops, homes and office space.
The site totals approximately 0.21ha, with the freehold of the site on offer. Manor Place is located 500 meters from Kennington Underground station in a residential area.
Kennington Park Road and Walworth Road are the main thoroughfares in the area, providing easy access in and out of central London.
The terrace consisted of ten retail units (which are now vacant) and residential units in the upper storeys.
Even though the Victorian terrace is not listed, the council is committed to retaining either certain period elements, or incorporating the whole of the terrace into a new scheme. This is subject to technical investigations that are being undertaken by a specialist structural engineer.
When the scope of the elements that are to be retained has been established, the council will appoint an architect to draw up a residential-led mixed use development scheme for the site.
The council will endeavour to obtain planning permission for the site, and then proceed to market towards the end of 2014.

Representatives of Southwark Council will attend the next Sitematch London event on 2 April 2014 at The Shard. Join Sitematch to secure your meeting with Southwark to discuss this site or other opportunitites.
