Brilliant plan, can't wait to see a more rationalised and continuous street network with active frontage.

Agreed, there is nothing worse than those awful 'business park' type developments when they are in the centre of an urban area. Wrong location and just so obstructive, effectively hampering regeneration efforts, hence the need for full redevelopment as proposed.

This must be at least ten years away and quite probably longer.

British Land have given 15 years as an indication of how long the whole development might take. But they're aiming to put in the planning application in summer 2015, with work on the first phase to start in 2016.

Thank Christ for this. The current shopping centre is truly awful!

British Land has bought a key £130m piece to unlock a 45-acre jigsaw of sites in Canada Water
Estates Gazette
20 February 2015


Quote:
The REIT has exchanged contracts with Aviva Investors to buy the 8.4-acre Surrey Quays leisure park.

The site is sandwiched between British Land’s Surrey Quays shopping centre and Harmsworth Quays – site of the former Daily Mail and Evening Standard printworks.

It is expected to unlock a major redevelopment in the area, which is the subject of *multiple plans for thousands of new homes, a university campus, offices and shops.

At 45 acres, the combined site is one of the largest in London. By comparison, Canary Wharf’s nearby Wood Wharf scheme totals 33.6 acres.

Surrey Quays leisure park comprises a cinema, bowling alley, bingo hall and restaurants.

Outline planning was secured in 2010 for 630 homes and 54,000 sq ft of offices at the site.

British Land said last June that it would consider redeveloping both the printworks and Surrey Quays shopping centre as part of the same Allies & Morrison-designed masterplan.

Initial proposals for the shopping centre included a 107,000 sq ft extension, while a mixed-use scheme was mooted for the old printworks.

In addition, King’s College London has secured an option agreement on the Mulberry business park site to the north of Harmsworth Quays, where it plans to build a new campus.

BL and Southwark council, which owns the freehold of the site, are working with the university to develop a masterplan.

James Sellar’s Sellar Design and Development owns another site between Mulberry business park and Surrey Quays shopping centre. It has agreed a deal with Notting Hill Housing to create a 1.5m sq ft residential-led scheme.

Residential values in the area are more than £650 per sq ft.

One local estate agent said: “On the map this is a Zone 2 postcode. While we do not predict a value explosion, prices in the area will continue to grow gradually and constantly as a result of the regeneration.”

Big news - but more delays.

I thought King's College had more than an option now on the Mulberry site - I thought it had taken possession, done enabling works (incl piling) and was to start construction any time now. Well, last month actually, and that didn't happen - so perhaps it's keeping its options open...

British Land confirms Surrey Quays plans
PropertyWeek.com
2 March 2015

Quote:
British Land has confirmed it has acquired Surrey Quays leisure park in south east London for £135m.

This deal completes British Land’s assembly strategy at Canada Water where it also owns Surrey Quays Shopping Centre and Harmsworth Quays, the former Daily Mail General Trust printing works. The combined sites, which were assembled over the last five years for a total of £250m, cover almost 50 acres creating one of the largest mixed use regeneration projects in London.

The group is drawing up a masterplan to create a new mixed use town centre for the area. Architects Allies & Morrison have been appointed to advise as masterplanners for the scheme, which could include up to 7m sq ft of office, retail, leisure, culture and residential space alongside higher educational and community uses.

Chris Grigg, chief executive for British Land, said: “This acquisition completes our assembly of a significant £2bn world-class development opportunity in the heart of one of London’s major regeneration zones. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Southwark Council to create a vibrant new mixed use office, retail and residential campus for Canada Water including a new town centre.”​​

Yes, I spotted that the other day. Pretty sure that's quietly changed from autumn 2014. Completion was meant to be in time for the start of the 16-17 academic year, i.e. by around Sept/Oct 2016. I don't see them building it in 12 months flat...

I was surprised too, like you I thought it was going to be ready for 2016 and under way by now. I wonder if it's related to the wider masterplanning and whether it needs amending to fit in with the new context without the printworks? Which gives me mixed feelings, I want it to get going asap, but also want the new area to work well as a whole

Agreed. Did anyone go to the Canada Water Campaign meeting last night? There will have been an update on this and other sites...

Stage 2 Consultation Report is out.

Full report: http://canadawatermasterplan.com/wp-...eport_Full.pdf

Executive summary: http://canadawatermasterplan.com/wp-...rt_ExecSum.pdf

BL happy to take comments via Soundings: [email protected]

What they're saying on the addition of the Surrey Quays Leisure Park site:

Quote:
The Draft Masterplan shown in December included indicative proposals for this area, to help inform a joined-up approach. It is now possible for the Canada Water Masterplan to fully consider proposals for the SE16 Printworks Site, Surrey Quays Shopping Centre Site and the Surrey Quays Leisure Park Site together.

Over the next few months the masterplanning team will be working up more detailed proposals for the three sites. The next stage of consultation will be held in the coming months and will discuss the masterplan further; we will be back in touch with details soon.

A new newsletter out - http://canadawatermasterplan.com/wp-...58-NL4-web.pdf

And some drop-in sessions coming up (starting 30 July), focusing on emerging thoughts on how to integrate the Leisure Park site, and some specifics around Canada Water (the lake itself): http://canadawatermasterplan.com/get-involved/. I'll try to attend.

What we're all waiting for, of course, is the consultation on the full masterplan. This "will be after the school summer holidays."

I did drop in on one of the sessions in the Surrey Quays mall. Nothing significant new to see.

Revised Canada Water AAP approved by the council
http://www.se16.com/3639-revised-can...ved-by-cabinet

The council seem keen on the idea of a KCL campus there (http://www.se16.com/1463-canada-wate...thwark-cabinet), so I wonder if this approval may lead to some progress on the Mulberry Site (where King's have an option on the land, and planning permission, and have done some site prep) - still all quiet there.
