Just to add, I saw the same thing as Swiss. I also saw a few contractors on site, last Saturday, but not sure what they were doing.

Debenhams to anchor Southside
Published: 25 October, 2012

Wandsworth to get first department store in £40m Southside extension

Metro Shopping Fund, the Land Securities and Delancey retail joint venture, has signed Debenhams to anchor the forthcoming £40m phase of redevelopment at its Southside Shopping Centre in the heart of Wandsworth.

The new department store will be a first for Wandsworth and will trade from 81,880 sq ft over ground, mezzanine and first floors with entrances on Garratt Lane and on to the North Mall inside the existing scheme.

Works are due to begin in early 2013 and will see the demolition of the existing Arndale Walk section of the centre, to create 100,000 sq ft of new retail space. Alongside the new Debenhams, five further retail units will be created along Garratt Lane and Metro is in advanced negotiations with a leisure operator for a 20,000-sq ft unit on the second floor. Debenhams is expected to be trading by Spring 2015.

The news comes as works continue on a £9m redevelopment further south on Garratt Lane. The run of new stores will open for business this coming Spring and will provide space for three new retailers and three restaurants, which are already pre-let to Rossopomodoro, CattleGrid and Wagamama. Metro is also completing an investment in the upper concourse of the existing scheme, reconfiguring the space to accommodate new lettings to Prezzo and Ed’s Easy Diner.

Helen McVie, retail asset manager at Delancey, said: “The catchment and location of Southside make it an obvious choice for targeted investment, and our asset management drive has already seen the scheme transformed from the tired former Arndale we purchased back in 2005 to a much sought after regional trading location. We see Debenhams’ commitment to Southside as a key step in developing it further.”

Lunson Mitchenall and CWM represent Southside Shopping Centre Debenhams represented themselves and KLM acted for Jones Bootmaker.

Scheme gives further boost to town centre

Release date: Thursday 25th October 12

http://www.wandsworth.gov.uk/news/ar...4SGYHN,3341Q,1


A town-centre office block that has lain vacant for three years is to be redeveloped to create new homes and shops.

The project, part of the ongoing £1bn regeneration of Wandsworth Town, will see 41 flats built in Wandsworth High Street - of which 37 per cent will be affordable housing.

In addition to the creation of new homes in both buildings, the scheme also features space for new shops to move into the high street.

Wandsworth Council's planning committee gave the go-ahead for the derelict Lyon House to be demolished to make way for new buildings on the site during a meeting on October 18.

As part of the project, the developer has agreed to contribute £125,000 towards town centre highways improvements, including helping fund a reconfiguration of the Wandsworth one-way system and enabling improvements at Carters Yard.
The council believes that switching part of the gyratory back to two-way working would relieve pressure on the high street and help it flourish - following in the footsteps Old York Road.

Thanks to the introduction of a new section of the A217 in the late 1980s, Old York Road became free from heavy traffic and it is now lined with independent boutiques, florists, cafes, restaurants, a family butcher and much more besides.
The council's planning spokesman, Councillor Nick Cuff, said: "The redevelopment of Lyon House will be a further boost to the ongoing town centre regeneration.

"Not only will it encourage new businesses to set up shop in Wandsworth, it will also create much-needed new homes - in particular a healthy number of units for affordable rent and intermediate housing."

Councillor Ravi Govindia, council leader and regeneration spokesman, said: "Wandsworth Town is benefitting from a huge amount of new investment, which has already seen the opening of a new town centre library, the transformation of the shopping centre into the thriving Southside complex plus a host of redevelopments in Hardwick's Way, Smuggler's Way, Buckhold Road, South Thames College and overlooking King George's Park.

"These schemes bring new retail, leisure, residential, employment and educational opportunities to area and act as magnets for further investment.
"In addition, as more town centre developments come forward our funding pot for the one-way system redesign project continues to grow - and if we can tackle that, the signs point to a very healthy future for Wandsworth High Street."
A summary of Wandsworth Town 's major investment sites includes the following:

Completed Schemes -
Ipsus01 (residential)
Barratt (residential)
South Thames College redevelopment
Wandsworth Town Library
Wandsworth Museum
Alma Hotel
Southside Shopping Centre Phase 1
Wandsworth Town Station upgrade and new entrance

Currently on site -
Battersea Rise (mixed residential / retail / commercial)
Osiers Road (residential)
Riverside Quarter (mixed residential / retail / commercial)
Wandsworth Business Village (mixed residential / commercial)
Cockpen House (mixed residential / retail / commercial)
Southside Shopping Centre Phase 2
Sainsbury's Garratt Lane (mixed hotel / retail)

Plans approved, about to start -
East Hill Hotel
Southside Shopping Centre Phase 3 (starting early 2013)

Applications expected soon -
Ram Brewery (mixed residential/retail/commercial)
ENDS

Putney High street improvements

http://www.wandsworth.gov.uk/news/ar...ution_and_jams


Putney High Street is benefiting from a £250,000 series of environmental improvements to upgrade pavements, reduce pollution and cut traffic congestion.

Contractors have just started work on a major project designed to make it safer and easier for pedestrians to negotiate the high street.

And changes to the road layout and other carriageway alterations are expected to improve traffic flows and reduce the chance of hold ups.

Transport spokesman Cllr Russell King said: "This is an important scheme that aims to tackle some of the issues that affect the southern end of the high street.
"We are removing much of the unnecessary street clutter and guardrails that hem people in and obstruct them as they walk along this part of the high street.
"We are also widening footpaths where we can and changing the layouts of some bus stops and also moving the taxi rank in a bid to free up road space and remove some of the high streets pinch points where vehicles can be held up by buses and taxis.

"As well as reducing delays for other roads users the changes should also speed up journey times for bus passengers.

"Improving traffic flows and keeping cars, buses and lorries on the move should also have a positive impact on local air quality levels, which is something we are committed to improving."

The changes include installing new pavements between Norroy Road and the Upper Richmond Road, removing unnecessary guardrails, widening the footway outside Putney Station and installing new cycle parking stands where space permits.

The footway opposite the station will be realigned to minimise the risks of large vehicles and buses blocking traffic, while the taxi rank outside the station will be moved to the Upper Richmond Road to free up more road space.

Pedestrians will also benefit from safety enhancements being installed at Norroy Road plus the widening of the high street pedestrian crossing near this junction.
Once these works have finished the carriageway between Norroy Road and the Upper Richmond Road will be resurfaced.

The works are expected to continue until April 2013. Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to traffic and pedestrians and avoid noise disturbance.

For more information regarding the works, please contact Jonathan Sanders on (020) 8871 6538.

The council is working closely with Transport for London to improve air quality in Putney High Street.

As a direct result of lobbying by the town hall, TfL has agreed to replace 46 buses that currently operate along the high street with new cleaner, greener buses, including ten hybrid models. It has also agreed to install advanced catalytic converters that significantly reduce emissions in a further 85 buses. These changes should be completed by March 2013.

'Where vehicles are held up by buses and taxis' - completely missing the point. In most of London buses ARE the main traffic. This kind of thinking just makes buses even slower and less convenient, giving people more incentive to take their cars out.

Wandsworth High Street Wins Planning

We’ve secured planning consent for a residential-led scheme for Peabody in the heart of Wandsworth’s Town Centre. Two new buildings containing 41 mixed-tenure homes arranged around a communal garden will replace a vacant office block.
The façade to the High Street – composed of rhythm of brick piers – is articulated to respond to its historic setting. The elevations facing the central garden are less formal with projecting balconies and large punched openings.

Debenhams set to open in Wandsworth town centre




A new department store is set to open in Wandsworth town centre as part of a £1bn regeneration project.

The new Debenhams store will trade over three floors in the Southside Shopping Centre, Garratt Lane, Wandsworth, and is expected to open by 2015.

It comes as part of the £40m phase of redevelopment of the shopping centre, which will create new jobs in the area.

Redevelopment work to demolish the existing Arndale Walk section of the centre is starting next year, with 100,000 sq ft of additional retail space being created.


Council leader, councillor Ravi Govindia, said: "Investment on a scale this big brings new retail, leisure, residential, employment and educational opportunities to the town.

"As well as making the area an even better place to live, this transformation will also establish Wandsworth as an attractive base for shops and businesses and an increasingly appealing destination for visitors

Neil Churchill, general manager of Southside, said: "Southside’s reputation as a leading retail and leisure destination for south west London is developing fast and we see Debenhams’ commitment as a key step in developing it further.

"A department store for Wandsworth will provide another exciting draw, alongside the Cineworld cinema, our great range of retail names and the growing mix of restaurants and cafés."

Walked past the Eclipse Hotel last night and noticed they have "Holiday Inn - coming soon" signs on the hoarding around the site.

Putney Blades | Putney | Wandsworth | 49m/24m | 15fl/7fl

The council has received a planning application to demolish the existing buildings on site and replace them with a building part 7, part 15 storeys plus a 2 storey basement to provide 3,528 sqm of retail space, 389 sqm of office space and 96 residential units.

The application site is located within Putney town centre. The site is L-shaped and fronts both Putney High Street and Putney Bridge Road with the existing corner block outside of the site boundary. The site is in close proximity to the River Thames and a number of conservation areas.

The redevelopment of the site would involve the demolition of the existing buildings on site and their replacement with a part 7, part 15 storey building in two distinct elements with retail uses on both frontages at ground floor level and an office entrance from Putney Bridge Road. The proposal would include public space fronting Putney Bridge Road and two underground basement car parks served by a lift also accessed from Putney Bridge Road. Private and affordable residential units would be accessed by separate cores from Putney Bridge Road and would be located at second floor and above. Some units would include external roof terraces.

The application also includes details of a green wall to be erected on to 327 Putney Bridge Road.

Proposal for Thames Jubilee bridge submitted to allow easy access to Fulham, Imperial Wharf station, Chelsea and Battersea



A proposal for the first crossing of the Thames in over a decade has been submitted for planning approval.

One World Design, a Battersea based architectural practise, want to build a foot and cycle Jubilee Bridge marking where the Queen boarded her barge at the start of the flotilla.

The new bridge links into the Nine Elms regeneration project, allowing passengers easy access to Fulham, Imperial Wharf station, Chelsea and Battersea.

It is hoped it will integrate the north and south, connecting pedestrians to leisure facilities on both sides of the river.

The freestanding bridge is estimated to cost £22m to build, with plans to gain backing from the private sector in a similar way to Barclays cycle hire or the 02 arena.

A design team behind it includes the creators of the Olympic Velodrome, Thames Cable car and the London Eye.

Chris Medland, director of One World Design, said he believed the area could benefit from a bridge ever since he moved to Battersea 10 years ago.

He said: "A new pedestrian and cycle crossing here, now, will be a fitting legacy for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and one which makes financial and common sense."

A model of the bridge is currently on view in the reception of Hotel Rafayel, in Lombard Road, Battersea.

Revised plans to regenerate Wandsworth town centre's historic Ram Brewery have been unveiled.

New proposals include replacing the disused brewery complex with 669 new homes, a 35-storey residential tower and more than 100,000 sq ft of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

The new planning application, submitted to Wandsworth Council on November 9 by developer Minerva.

The original application, granted planning permission in December 2008, included 1,000 apartments and 200,000 square feet of retail space in two towers.



But in February 2009 the application was referred to and rejected by a government appointed planning inspector.

The revised application includes just one tower and a homage to the site's history with a micro-brewery and brewing museum.

Minerva has also pledged to carry out work improving the water quality of The River Wandle, which runs through the heart of the development.

Tim Garnham, Minerva joint chief executive, said: "These proposals will breathe new life into the historic Ram Brewery site and Wandsworth town centre.

"The scheme will provide a new shopping experience for local people as well as new jobs and new homes."

The developers hope the regeneration will create more than 500 jobs and hundreds more to construct the site.

A recent survey found more than three-quarters of residents supported the proposals but there have already been objections from some.

Andrew Whiteford, from Trefoil Road, Wandsworth, said: "The development should include at lease one parking space per residential unit and additional parking spaces for visitors to the shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

"1200 cycle parking spaces will not help the local residents at all nor alleviate the already existing parking problem.

"A 35 storey residential tower is simply too high - one more blot on the Wandsworth skyline."

A public exhibition open from 4.30pm to 7.30pm at the site will be held on November 29.

To read the application visit www.wandsworth.gov.uk/ and enter 2012/5290 in the planning search box.

Exhibitions for new Ram Brewery proposal

Residents can find out more about a new proposal to redevelop the Ram Brewery site in Wandsworth at two public exhibitions.

Minerva Limited wants to redevelop the historic site in the centre of the town - creating 669 new homes and generating 500 new permanent jobs and 370 construction jobs.
The proposal would see 166 homes built within a 35-storey residential tower, as well as more than 9,500 square metres of space dedicated to new shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

In addition, Minerva is proposing to restore and refurbish historic buildings within the site and include a micro-brewery and a brewing museum as part of the completed scheme.
Under the proposal, the River Wandle would be opened up and landscaped to provide public access along a new riverside walk.

Public exhibitions are being held at the Ram Brewery site on Thursday, November 29, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm and on Saturday, December 1, from 9.30am to 12.30pm to give residents a chance to view the plans and talk to the development team.

The ongoing £1bn regeneration of Wandsworth Town shows no sign of slowing down. Last month, Debenhams announced a plan to establish a new store as part of a forthcoming £40m phase of redevelopment at Southside Shopping Centre.
That announcement came just days after Wandsworth Council gave the go-ahead for the long-vacant Lyon House office block in Wandsworth High Street to be redeveloped to create new homes and shops.

Councillor Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council, said: "As well as creating homes, business space and jobs, town centre developments also generate financial contributions towards the Wandsworth one-way system redesign project.
"We believe that switching part of the gyratory back to two-way working would relieve pressure on the high street and help it really flourish."
A summary of Wandsworth Town 's major investment sites includes the following:

Completed Schemes -

The Filaments





http://building-projects-news.blogsp...velopment.html

Mount Anvil: Central London property developer Mount Anvil has today unveiled the new name of its major development project in Wandsworth (SW18) as ‘The Filaments’.

The new name and branding concept pays homage to the rich history of both the site – which formerly served as a gas mantle factory – and the wider Wandsworth area, which had historically been a major centre for the silk industry in the UK. The name and identity was developed in partnership with branding agency Identity.

The Filaments – comprising two adjacent sites – will feature a total of 416 residential units, including 340 homes for private sale, as well as 7,276 square metres of commercial/retail space and 182 parking spaces. The scheme will also include accessible public space, a private garden and multiple water features.

With a gross development value of £150million, The Filaments represents a significant part of the wider regeneration strategy for Wandsworth. The area is popular with young professionals due to its proximity to numerous outdoor spaces such as Wandsworth and St George’s Parks, in addition to the vibrant centres of the West End and King’s Road.

The scheme – purchased by Mount Anvil in March 2011 – has been designed by architectural firm Rolfe Judd. Mount Anvil assembled this scheme with the purchase of two adjoining sites, within a four week period in 2011, from Workspace Group plc and Minerva Property Holdings. The first phase of homes will be launched in Spring 2013, with practical completion expected in Summer 2015.

Killian Hurley, Chief Executive of Mount Anvil, comments:
“We are delighted to announce The Filaments as the name of our major development in Wandsworth. Illuminating both a rich heritage and a bright vision for the future, The Filaments promises to play a pivotal role in the major regeneration effort underway there, bringing new homes of outstanding quality to the area.”

Exhibition today (Dec 1st) at the Ram Brewery, Wandsworth Town:





A planning application has been submitted by Minerva Limited for the redevelopment of the Ram Brewery site in Wandsworth forming the centrepiece of Wandsworth town centre’s regeneration plans. The development will deliver 669 new homes to the borough, including 166 within a 35 storey landmark residential tower designed by EPR architects, as well as over 9500 sq m of space dedicated to new shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

The proposed development will preserve many of the site’s historic buildings which will be restored and refurbished, and a micro-brewery and a brewing museum will also be part of the completed scheme. If approved, the development would generate 500 new permanent jobs and 370 construction jobs. The River Wandle will be opened up and landscaped to provide public access along a new riverside walk.
