The character of North Southwark, London has changed with the opening of Tate Modern and improved transport links, which has given the area a new lease of life, attracting a rich mix of people and businesses. A key part of this dense residential scheme is to re-establish Bear Lane and Great Suffolk Street as a place for people to visit, live, work, shop and eat. The development site is triangular in shape - Bear Lane itself consists of late nineteenth century industrial brick built buildings with an eleven metre high elevated railway running to its west. Great Suffolk Street consists of 4 to 6 storey high late nineteenth century warehouses converted and now used as offices. Our scheme respects the heights of the proposed adjacent schemes and of the White Hart pub.
