CLIENT LONDON SQUARE
The site includes some of the last remaining examples of buildings for the tannery trade, an industry that came to define Bermondsey in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
The scheme refurbishes these existing buildings and supplements them with new ones to provide new commercial, retail and residential uses. The project provides for more than 400 new homes, 35% of which will be affordable and social housing, with a new commercial hub of approximately 20,000 sqm dedicated to small and medium-sized enterprises.
