20 Albion Street is a former public house site known as The Albion in Rotherhithe, London SE16.

The site has planning consent for 8 new sustainable homes within 6,447 sq ft arranged as 3,863 sq ft of accommodation on the first to third floors, above a 2,584 sq ft wine bar or pub on the ground and basement levels.

The freehold site is currently occupied by a redundant 6,501 sq ft pub The Albion that has been closed for 10 years.

The building comprises four studio apartments, three 1-bed flats and a 2-bedroom penthouse apartment on the top (third) floor.

The planned new building’s current design is modern, using red-brick and glass, with the ground floor commercial unit offering expanses of floor-to-ceiling glazing providing an open and welcoming environment for customers.


2021 March - KALMARs brings the development opportunity to the market. Offers in excess of £1.25 million are being invited, with planning consent to build a contemporary style 4-storey mixed-use development.

Albion Street used to be a timber importing dock area, a vibrant road and home to a market and a range of retail, leisure and specialist shops that meet the needs of the diverse local community. The Norwegian church Sjømannskirken i London and Finnish church opposite reflect the riverside area’s Scandinavian connection and the cosmopolitan and maritime history with particularly strong links to London’s community.

Albion Street is host to the very successful Scandi Market twice a year. As other buildings/sites are developed nearby it likely to be further recognised as London’s Scandinavian centre.

Rotherhithe, a Saxon name for ‘Sailor’s Haven’ or ‘Mariners’ Landing Place’, was originally a Saxon fishing village just east of London that became a thriving global Elizabethan shipping centre. The most noteworthy ship to sail out of Rotherhithe was the Mayflower, which famously carried ‘the Pilgrim Fathers’ to found one of the first English settlements in North America in 1620. Its captain, Christopher Jones, is buried nearby in the Rotherhithe parish church. Most of the ancient docks were closed in the 1970s but the redeveloping area has retained many docks, street names and other infrastructure links to its maritime and cosmopolitan character and culture.
