An £83million mixed-use development of ‘luxury’ flats for Bermondsey’s Tower Bridge Road has been given planning permission.
The Newhams Yard scheme, at 151-157 Tower Bridge Road, will see three new buildings of up to ten storeys arranged around a public courtyard, with retail, office and restaurant space on the ground floor.
Approved plans for the development, close to Bermondsey Street and Tanner Street, include 86 ‘deluxe’ apartments, ranging from studios, one-bed, two-beds and three-bedroom homes.
143 ‘aparthotel’ residences – apartments that residents can check out of as they would in a hotel – is also included, alongside a café, co-working space and a ‘state-of-the-art’ gym.
David Galman, Sales Director at Galliard Homes, which proposed the scheme alongside Acorn Property Group, said the company was ‘delighted’ to be given planning permission.
“The scheme is in a prominent position providing easy access to Tanner Street and Bermondsey Street and is immersed within the vibrant local Bermondsey community,” he said.
“The scheme will create a new communal hub for the local area with a variety of cafes, restaurants and retail opportunities which we anticipate will be very popular with local residents.”
