Canada Water is an ambitious and multi-phased redevelopment project being delivered through a development partnership with Sellar Design & Development. Set across eight acres by the water’s edge of Canada Water, the scheme will see over 1,000 new homes with a wide range of commercial, retail and leisure uses on site. This will include a new 100,000sqft flagship Decathlon store that replaces an existing store. The entire scheme is due to complete in 2024.
Given the length of the development programme we developed a very successful meanwhile use at the site of a large vacant warehouse shed on site. Our “Hawker House” street food court, managed by Streetfeast, has transformed this building into a vibrant and thriving food destination, attracting hundreds of customers, from young professionals to families with small children.
At a glance
Canada Water has been identified in the Mayor’s London Plan as an Opportunity Area; an area which has significant capacity for development. In response Southwark Council has set out a vision for the area, outlining the council’s commitment to making Canada Water a vibrant destination with high quality homes and great local facilities. Our plans address these aspirations and our development work will bring quality new homes, retail, leisure facilities and public spaces in a well-connected, prime London location.
