Last week, Berkeley Homes announced The Ivy Collection as the first flagship restaurant at One Tower Bridge.
Caprice Holdings Ltd has secured a premium riverfront-facing restaurant space, totalling approx. 8,000 sq. ft., for a new Ivy brasserie, equal in calibre to the Ivy Chelsea Garden on the King's Road. The Ivy brasserie will occupy a space that benefits from exceptional views of two world heritage sites, Tower of London and Tower Bridge and will also enjoy a generous terrace overlooking Potters Fields Park and the River Thames.
The signing follows last year's announcement of a new 900-seat theatre, which will be run by The London Theatre Company, led by Sir Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr, the former Artistic Director and Executive Director of the National Theatre.
Harry Lewis, managing director of Berkeley Homes (South East London) Ltd commented:
"This latest signing follows the recent announcement of the London Theatre Company's exciting new riverside venue and marks a significant move to establishing this heritage location as the Covent Garden of the South Bank.
"The Ivy brasserie will perfectly complement the highly anticipated new theatre and we look to forward to working with these, and other high quality operators across the development's retail offer, to create the Capital's newest cultural and dining destination."

Berkeley is due to complete the at One Tower Bridge development in early 2017.
It contains 43 social rented apartments on part of the site owned by the Corporation of London. A commuted sum of £10.51 million has also been paid by Berkeley to the London Borough of Southwark towards affordable housing provision across the borough.
Last week, Southwark's Planning Committee agreed some variations to the original planning legal agreement. These included modifications to the access arrangements for Corporation of London residents to a semi-private communal garden that sits on a podium at first floor level between two buildings.
The Corporation of London had previously expressed concerns about the maintenance costs associated with their own communal roof gardens as well as the level of their service charge. These issues are exacerbated by access to the podium garden which brings with it a separate additional service charge that pays for management and maintenance of the garden, access through one of the private blocks and maintenance of the access areas.
Changing the access arrangements for Corporation of London residents to the podium garden now means they will not have to pay a higher service charge. It also has no significant impact on the level of amenity they enjoy.
This is for two reasons: firstly, there are no facilities (such as children's play equipment) within the podium garden which the Corporation of London residents could benefit from; secondly, the Corporation of London residents still benefit from a very large amount of their own communal space. This is 316% over the minimum policy requirement.
In reality, the affordable housing residents on this development will enjoy three times as much communal amenity space per home as the private residents. Every affordable home on this site enjoys two substantial roof-top communal gardens with amazing views over the river Thames, Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
