Rockwell Exchanges Contracts on Prime Elephant & Castle Site
Rockwell Exchanges Contracts on Prime Elephant & Castle Site
Rockwell has exchanged contracts on the Salvation Army Headquarters at 101 Newington Causeway in the London Borough of Southwark. The freehold purchase, in the heart of Elephant and Castle, is one of the last major opportunities in the regeneration of the area and offers outstanding scope to redevelop the existing office buildings. The disposal is to support Salvation Army’s relocation to new headquarters within the Borough at Denmark Hill.
Elephant and Castle has benefitted from major investment in recent years, with redevelopment proposals including the Shopping Centre and Elephant Park set to deliver a substantial amount of new residential, office and commercial space. In total, more than £4bn is being invested into the area’s regeneration, with redevelopment of the former Salvation Army headquarters able to contribute significantly to the vibrancy and vitality of the town centre.
Rockwell has had an impressive start to 2020 with planning permission secured for Quay House in Canary Wharf alongside the commencement of development at 82 West India Dock Road, adjacent to Westferry DLR station, following a £106m investment deal with Aviva Investors.
Rockwell has established a reputation for its commitment to local communities, going above and beyond to ensure they benefit from investment in their area. This is achieved through partnership with local organisations, such as the London Training Centre and Boundary Community School, who are currently delivering training programmes to ensure that local people have the skills and confidence necessary to find employment in forthcoming developments.
Donal Mulryan, Founder of Rockwell commented: “Elephant and Castle is undoubtedly one of the most exciting areas in London and the Salvation Army headquarters is an exceptional site which we’re delighted to be bringing forward. Rockwell has an absolute commitment to ensuring that local people benefit directly from each proposal and to working in partnership with local organisations to achieve this. I’m excited to begin work on a scheme which will have a positive impact on the lives of local people and the vibrancy of the town centre.”
The Salvation Army has been advised on the disposal of 101 Newington Causeway by Savills.
Andrew Cox, Savills Development Director, says: “Savills undertook an extensive marketing campaign that generated huge interest in this landmark site. The Salvation Army believe that Rockwell had enough vision and track record to deliver on the site. Elephant and Castle is undergoing significant regeneration. This sale clearly demonstrates the depth of the market in this part of south London and the improved confidence in the London land market. We are delighted to transact with Rockwell on behalf of our key client The Salvation Army”.
Construction begins on Rockwell’s 30 storey tower in Canary Wharf
London: 15 January 2020: Rockwell has today begun construction on the scheme at 82 West India Dock Road which will include London’s largest and tallest Premier Inn hotel, alongside new homes, adjacent to Westferry DLR station. The £151m project will mark Westferry as a destination and rejuvenate the formerly derelict site.
The new mixed-use scheme, which sits between West India Dock and Limehouse Causeway, was granted planning permission in October 2018 by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. John Sisk & Son are the appointed contractors for the development, which is scheduled for completion in early 2022.
Rockwell will create the landmark scheme at Canary Wharf which will also include a restaurant, café, gym facilities and a landscaped pocket park, alongside communal gardens for new residents. Designed by architects SimpsonHaugh, the 30-storey mixed-use development is a gateway to Canary Wharf’s central cluster.
A marker for the area, the scheme will create significant employment opportunities in the hospitality and leisure industry and will create 66 new residential properties, of which 18 will be affordable homes, located within the same building - responding to the growing demand for affordable housing in the borough.
Donal Mulryan, Founder of Rockwell commented: “We are immensely proud to break ground on this landmark building which will be an important asset for the area, providing significant benefits for the local community with the creation of numerous jobs for local people, enhanced public realm and much needed new homes. We look forward to working with our contractors John Sisk & Son to deliver this high-quality hotel-led scheme, and look forward to delivering similar high-quality schemes in the future.”
Ajaz Shafi, Regional Managing Director at John Sisk & Son added: “We are delighted to be working with the Rockwell team on this exceptional project. We have used smart thinking and an innovative approach to the design, planning and delivery of this high rise building on a tight footprint in London. Sisk works in close collaboration with all the key stakeholders to ensure we deliver quality projects, safely, which meet the needs of the community and our client. Our track record in this type of project and our strong supply chain partnerships in the region are key to the successful delivery of this development.”
Louise Woodruff, Property Acquisitions Manager - Outer London, Whitbread Hotels & Restaurants explained: “This is a landmark hotel for us as it will be the tallest Premier Inn in the UK and, aside from our hotels at Gatwick and Heathrow Airports, it will also be our largest in London at 400 bedrooms. It’s great to see construction begin on such a fantastic development which will make a positive contribution to Tower Hamlets by creating local jobs alongside new public areas and affordable homes.”
