The full diversity of Ram Quarter’s residential offering has been realised thanks to Greenland’s launch of new homes in Langridge House and Coopers’ Lofts at the site this year.
Greenland is delivering 338 homes within the first phase of its redevelopment of the former Young’s brewery site, ranging from studios to 4-bedroom duplexes. The homes celebrate Ram Quarter’s legacy as Britain’s oldest continuously-running brewery, while offering a modern contemporary feel.
Taotao Song, CEO of Greenland UK, said: “Ram Quarter has something for everyone, with a mix of new-build and restored heritage apartments on offer. Buyers get both the convenience of buying new and the chance to live at the heart of a very special historic London site.”
Brewing has been taking place at Ram Quarter since at least 1533. Reflecting this prestigious past, Greenland has delivered a collection of 14 distinctive loft apartments set in the site’s Grade-II listed former brewery buildings – which are now named Coopers’ Lofts.
The layout of each apartment in Coopers’ Lofts is unique to celebrate the design of the historic buildings, incorporating double-height spaces, mezzanine levels and beamed ceilings. Subtle nods to Ram Quarter’s history can be seen in the tasteful restoration of 19th century period features, such as timber windows, exposed brickwork and ironwork. The residents’ lobby looks on to the lovingly-repainted cogs of the original brewery beam engines, installed in the mid-1800s. The older of these two beam engines is believed to be the world’s oldest compound beam engine still in its original location.
The design of Langridge House offers a more modern take on Ram Quarter’s brewing legacy. The building itself is named after a 16th century landlord of The Ram Inn public house. Set across three floors, all homes in Langridge House have balconies, with a number offering views across the brewery stables and Ram Quarter’s central boulevard. The top-floor homes feature characterful sloping, high ceilings, echoing the pitched roofs of the former brewery buildings across the site.
Taotao Song adds: “Buyers have responded extremely well to our vision for Ram Quarter. A strong community is already developing on site as residents move into their new homes, bringing this exciting project to life.”
