Overview

The Liberty of Southwark at 25-33 Southwark Street is a mixed-use development in London SE1.

The 0.7ha derelict site near London Bridge station and Borough Market will be turned into a local cultural and social hub.

Designed by the local architect Allies and Morrison, The Liberty of Southwark comprises a varied collection of contemporary brick buildings, sensitive to the scale of their surroundings and full of references to the Victorian industrial and commercial architecture of the area. 15 Southwark Street, dating from the 1860s, is also restored as part of the development.

New Homes For Sale and Rent
36 new homes will also be built within the development, with 50 per cent affordable, including 12 new homes available at social rent, creating a diverse and economically sustainable community that will allow people and businesses to thrive.

Commercial Space
Sitting between Southwark Street, Redcross Way and Union Street, the site will create a new commercial centre for Southwark, providing more than 200,000 square feet of commercial space for restaurants, cafés, retail opportunities and flexible small business workspace.

Around 141,000 sq ft of office space including 10% of affordable workspace.

22,700 sq ft of retail space including 9 retail units and 12 market stalls.

New Jobs
The site will contribute to the local economy through the new commercial facilities, as well as by creating more than 1,850 jobs once complete, which is especially vital given its location within an opportunity area and Central Activity Zone near London Bridge station.

Small and medium businesses will also be encouraged to take advantage of the new hub through the provision of 10 per cent affordable workspace. This builds on U+I and TfL’s reputations for supporting new and developing businesses. As a landlord, more than 85 per cent of TfL’s tenants are small or medium businesses.

Public realm Improvements
A range of public realm improvements, including new pedestrian routes, will be delivered to help the local community explore the new businesses and bustling market stalls and reinstate some of the medieval yards and lanes of historic Southwark. These lanes will be lined with shops, cafés, restaurants and market stalls to bring activity during the day and evening. Smaller retail units are also included to support and encourage accommodate small independent traders.

Community Garden
There will also be a new community garden and play space for members of the public to socialise as well as more new cycle spaces.
