£1.25m former pub site to become mixed-use wine bar development
A former pub in South East London is set to be transformed into a mixed-use development as it is brought to market.
Estate agency KALMARs is selling a former public house site known as The Albion at 20 Albion Street in Rotherhithe.
The site currently has planning consent for eight new-build apartments above a new ground floor/basement wine bar café.
Richard Kalmar, managing director at KALMARs, commented: “As well as providing eight modern sustainable homes, the site will be part of the regeneration of this ‘happening’ area, where British Land and Grosvenor are starting work on transformational major developments.
“The ground floor use will appeal to the young richly diverse community that is now settled there, providing a family-orientated café/bar culture.
“Home entertainment is no substitute for the breaking of bread together that is the basis of our civilisation. Once COVID-19 is over, people will still want to relax and go out to meet each other in a modern welcoming environment.”
