New time-lapse video shows renewal of historic Wandsworth site

News 10 January 2020

Greenland has released new footage (see video on this page) showing the transformation of Ram Quarter, its redevelopment of the former Young’s brewery site in Wandsworth, southwest London.

The time-lapse video shows the careful restoration of the Grade-II listed brewery buildings on the site, alongside the construction of stunning new-build homes in the first phase of the redevelopment programme.

The former Ram Brewery has special cultural significance for residents of Wandsworth for its long tradition of brewing.  Remaining sympathetic to this heritage during the redevelopment, while reimagining the site to create a new heart for Wandsworth town centre, was central to Greenland’s vision for Ram Quarter.  Wandsworth landmarks – such as the Grade-II listed brewery buildings, the old Young’s stables, and the clock tower – have been preserved and given a new lease of life as the historic focal points of the development.

The site had for years been closed to the public, shut away behind the brewery walls.  The video shows how Ram Quarter opened to the community, reconnecting it to the local area and creating a new central boulevard, civic square and riverside promenade.  New access points link Ram Quarter to Wandsworth High Street to the south, and to Ram Street and Old York Road to the east, following through to Wandsworth Town station just 400 metres away.

The first phase of Ram Quarter is now complete with residents living in their new homes.  Greenland is also delivering around 70,000 sq ft of new shops, restaurants, bars and leisure outlets.
