A 1 acre site located at the north of the Isle of Dogs
within walking distance of Canary Wharf.
A contract for the acquisition of the Freehold was exchanged. A detailed planning application was drawn up with MAKE architects and successfully negotiated with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and the GLA.
A resolution to grant planning permission with a S106 was then obtained.
The scheme consists of 414 residential units in 2 towers of 30 and 35 storeys above a replacement McDonalds restaurant and 2 further retail units.
Further refinements to the planning permission were granted and the site was sold with the benefit of planning to Essential Living to be developed and held as a residential rental investment.
A redevelopment of a Grade II listed office building
into a 3 unit serviced apartment block.
We provided a viability analysis of the best use of this attractive listed office building for CBREi’s Lionbrook Property Fund.
The decision was made to convert the property to residential and SB2 achieved a planning consent for residential use from the City of London.
Subsequently CBREi decided to convert and hold the investment as serviced apartments and we managed the detailed design and construction contract through to completion.
A management agreement for the building was then signed with GoNative to manage the serviced apartments on behalf of the fund and the flats have proved very popular due to the excellent location and unique setting.
A 0.44 acre site located to the north of Peckham
The Freehold site was acquired unconditionally with the benefit of an outline planning permission for a change of use to residential.
Over a 12 month period, a detailed planning application was drawn up and successfully negotiated with the London Borough of Southwark, culminating in the approval of a reserve matters application with a unilateral undertaking.
The scheme consists of 39 residential units in single 4 storey building.
The sale of the site to London and Quadrant Housing Association was then completed.
