Overview

Dylon Riverside is the Phase II on the DYLON Factory Works site in Lower Sydenham developed by Weston Homes.

Part of the DYLON textiles dyeing factory site will be transformed into a new £100 million (GDV) high-quality residential development providing 254 apartments, undercroft basement parking, new children’s play space and landscaped gardens.

The new Weston Homes development has a masterplan by architectural practice Ian Ritchie Architects, with detailed design by Weston Homes in-house architectural and design team. It is comprised of two buildings, rising between four and eleven storeys in height, stepped up from the south to north, with 121 parking bays and a large communal resident’s garden extending down towards the Pool River, as well as a new lit river walk.

The contemporary buildings will have full-height windows, balconies and tiered roofscapes complete with feature London Yellow Stock brickwork, providing a connection to nearby residential buildings.



History

The DYLON site has a colourful history. The DYLON (‘Dyes of London’) textiles dyeing factory in Sydenham was founded in 1946 by entrepreneurs Luca Purbeck and Peter Samuel providing colourful dyes for clothing, curtains and other household goods, the vibrant colours aimed at brightening up the spirits of families across post-war Britain.

By the 1970s DYLON had become part of the Mayborn Group, with the firm’s dyes being sold in 70 countries around the world with the DYLON range at the 1979 International Homewear Exhibition in Monte Carlo opened by HSH Princess Grace of Monaco (Grace Kelly).

In 2008 the DYLON factory became surplus to requirements when the Mayborn Group sold DYLON International to the European Spotless Group, with planning for conversion of the site to residential started in 2010.

Weston Homes has purchased the DYLON site with the benefit of full planning consent, granted in March 2021, the scheme forms Phase II of the redevelopment of the DYLON textiles dyeing factory complex, Phase I, providing 223 apartments, being undertaken in 2016-17 by Crest Nicholson.

Savills was advertising the site for sale in 2021.

With Lower Sydenham Railway Station (TfL Travel Zone 4) just 200 metres to the north, the new residential development will provide direct access into central London in 25 minutes, with access to the south circular motorway network only three miles to the north.
