Greenland (UK) Investment Ltd has appointed Bruce Gillingham Pollard as joint leasing agent alongside CBRE to market more than 70,000 sq ft of new retail and restaurant space at its Ram Quarter development in Wandsworth, London.
Drawing on its global development expertise, Greenland is regenerating the former Young’s Ram Brewery site to provide premium retail and leisure space, alongside more than 700 homes.
The scheme includes retail and restaurant units within the converted Young’s brewery buildings, providing striking heritage spaces set around the scheme’s main square. Ram Quarter’s central retail boulevard provides up to 14,000 sq ft in a series of modern units.
17,000 sq ft of flexible restaurant space with outside terraces have also been created along the bank of the River Wandle.
Ram Quarter sits at the heart of the town centre, linking the existing shopping and food & beverage offer at Southside shopping centre with the boutiques and cafés along Old York Road and Wandsworth Town station only four minutes’ walk away. Construction of the central retail units and waterside restaurants is now complete, and the handover of the first 250 residential units is underway. The heritage units and residences in the former brewery buildings are then due for completion later this year.
Taotao Song, UK Managing Director for Greenland, commented: “The transformation of the Ram brewery site is opening exciting opportunities for Wandsworth. With its excellent transport connections, riverside location and high-quality public realm, Ram Quarter is set to become a thriving new retail and leisure destination for southwest London.
“Our focus will be on providing premium brands and independent operators to complement the existing retail offer at Southside shopping centre and along Garratt Lane. Bruce Gillingham Pollard’s experience in the London market and its expertise in leasing boutique destinations places it well to deliver this ambition. We look forward to working with the team and CBRE to unlock Ram Quarter’s full potential.”
