Mixed-use scheme near British Land regeneration project
Architect Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands is set to submit a planning application for an £80m mixed-use scheme in Canada Water, south-east London.
The 18-storey project, known as the Brooklyn, will contain 150 homes and 25,000sq ft of office space on a site called St Olav’s Court besides the Rotherhithe Tunnel.
The scheme is set to progress after developer Southern Grove exchanged on the site last week. It will now seek a housing association as a partner to ensure as much of the housing as possible is “affordable”.
A planning application will be submitted by the end of October, said a spokesman.
The scheme will be located close to British Land’s 53-acre redevelopment site south-east of Canada Water station. Planning was granted by Southwark Council in October for that £3.3bn project, which includes Surrey Quays shopping centre.
The council hopes it will become a new town centre with 3,000 homes and retail, office and leisure space.
