Residential development kickstarts £500m Bermondsey regeneration scheme
A residential development in London’s Bermondsey has kickstarted the revival of the area known locally as ‘Biscuit Town’.
Estate agent KALMARs has launched its new Bombay Street development directly adjacent to the 10 acre former Peek Freans Biscuit Factory and warehouse site, which is being regenerated into a new £500m ‘Biscuit Town’ destination for Bermondsey.
Formerly the site of a Peek Freans & Co subsidiary warehouse and workshop that stored ingredients and equipment for making wedding cakes and Christmas puddings, the 0.25 acre site at 4-10 Bombay Street now comprises a range of private apartments as well as commercial space.
The project includes a new community garden and the redevelopment of the neighbouring Victorian railway arches to create a combination of commercial and retail units, with some of the arches opened up to create new pedestrian boulevards which will provide access to the adjacent Grosvenor ‘biscuit town’ regeneration project.
Marc Faure, head of new homes at KALMARs, commented: “Bombay Street is a highly anticipated new apartment scheme which we are launching early so that buyers can selected their preferred home, prior to the development being build complete and ready for occupation this October.
“One of the first brand new developments to be launched in Bermondsey since the ending of the UK lockdown and the restarting of the London housing market these apartments are ideal for our new normal and all provide private outside space and technology for home working.”
