GVA Second London Wall has been appointed as the project manager for the £1.25bn redevelopment of the Thameside 22-acre Stag Brewery site in Mortlake, southwest London.
The company has been appointed by developer Reselton Properties, a subsidiary of Singapore-based City Developments Limited (CDL).
Initially, Second London Wall’s appointment will consist of tendering the pre-demolition soft strip of the old brewery buildings and preparation of utility diversions to enable demolition after receiving planning consent.
Developer Reselton Properties had recently secured planning permission for its mixed-use scheme from the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames.
Designed by architects Squire & Partners, the Stag Brewery project will open up the enclosed site with a regeneration of the brewery, which will form a key part of Mortlake’s future.
The planning application includes creation of a traditional commercial high street with 20 units for shops, bars, restaurants, a gym, a hotel, cinema and rowing club; nine acres of green space with squares with public access surrounded by residential accommodation. A green link will connect the existing Mortlake Green with the River Thames.
A secondary school will be constructed for 1,200 students, together with a full-sized football pitch, which will also be available for community use, as well as indoor multi-use gym, play and sports space.
In addition, 3,000m² of offices will be built, providing space for existing and new local small businesses.
Furthermore, 667 homes will be built across the site, which will be a mix of one-, two-, three- and four-bed room homes, private and affordable.
A care village, comprising up to 150 assisted living units and an additional care home with dementia care, are also included in the scheme. Underground parking will be provided for all residential buildings.
Improvement of road junction at Chalkers Corner has also been proposed.
Extensive public consultation exercise has been carried out prior to the submission of application. The consultation included exhibitions, public meetings and liaison with local community groups.
The design has been developed with inputs from the 2011 London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames development brief for the site, along with national planning policy guidance.
