Canada Water Dockside launches community engagement in Rotherhithe
The skyline of the Rotherhithe peninsula will be completely different to what we’ve seen for many years. While we heard a lot about British Land’s masterplan, the site bought by Sellars has only seen the development of phase 1 but that’s about to change with the launch of a community engagement campaign by Canada Water Dockside.
In June 2020, Notting Hill Genesis and Sellars sold the site located in Canada Water and comprising phase 2 and 3 to German investor Art-Invest Real Estate for £140 m as several media reported. Initially, the plans were to develop residential units but an article published in BISNOW indicates “Art-Invest is now going to progress a scheme that will be office-led, with around 1M SF of workspace. “
Art-Invest Real Estate describes their vision for the site as “a commercially-led, mixed-use development comprising sustainable, flexible work and community space providing a new, vibrant town centre”
The site includes former Decathlon modular units and car park behind it and the area opposite which is now home to Hawker House.
Canada Water Dockside is keen to hear what local residents’ priorities and concerns are at this early stage of the development. A printed newsletter was distributed during the first week of January 2021 to accompany the launch of the project website (you can view the distribution area here).
We include a slide show of the newsletter below or click here to read or download it online. If you prefer you can take their survey online.
