British Land, the property developer, recently submitted plans to Southwark Council. They detail the construction of new offices in the structure housing London’s Printworks nightclub. The application is part of the Canada Water Masterplan. For those that don’t know, this is a £4billion, 53-acre regeneration project in the borough. British Land are planning it in conjunction with the local community and Southwark Council.

The history of the site

What was once the printing press building called Harmsworth Quays was bought by British Land back in 2012. They then got permission for Broadwick Live to use the building. This is an events management company. It became the Printworks London, a 6,000 capacity venue that opened its doors in January of 2017. Since then, it has become one of the capital’s most popular clubs. The design is a celebration of the industrial location but has spectacular lighting. It became a big spot for heavyweight DJ bookings.

Now, British Land has submitted what is called a Reserved Matters Application (RMA) to the council. This is for a sustainable development of the structure that will create new offices and more. There is also a second RMA to construct a new road – Printworks Street. The plan is to build it along the top of the site.

The proposals

This sustainable office development in Zone H includes several things. There will be ground floor retail and new landscaping. Additionally, it shall include the creation of new routes on the site. The plans shall celebrate the industrial and raw character of the current structure. At the same time, it is going to bring its appearance up to a contemporary standard.

Broadwick Live and British Land have said that discussions about carrying on working in a partnership and preserving the future of Printworks London are continuing. The former said that Canada Water’s regeneration consists of the evolution of Printworks London. They also said it is essential to the plans for a wonderful development.
