Land lying to the East of Ravensbourne River…
The site is nestled in a quiet residential area in the heart of Bromley, lying to the east of Ravensbourne River. The site was used as a former Pavillion with grass sports pitches and a tennis court on its eastern edge. The site is approximately 27,500sqm and is in close proximity to Ravensbourne station, which backs onto the lush gardens of Beckenham Place Park.
The London Borough of Bromley
The South London Borough of Bromley lies just 12 miles and 15 minutes from Central London. Bromley offers a world of charm with easy access to the city through its exceptional transport connections.
Excellent schools, good sized housing and outstanding access to parks and green spaces are all factors that have made Bromley London’s most sought after Borough. The Kent Downs lie within the Bromley area, making it the only London borough to include an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area also benefits from an outstanding selection of restaurants ranging from fine dining to cheap ‘eat-outs’ with around 300 shops and restaurants to choose from.
High-end independent cafés and boutiques are beginning to find space among the usual high street chains and huge investment in some of the area’s run down historic buildings will give another boost to the area. Bromley also boasts several options for evening entertainment such as the Churchill Theatre, which plays host to regular national tours.
The land is located east of Ravensbourne River in the London Borough of Lewisham on the border with Bromley.
The site is situated amongst a series of open spaces that form an area of Metropolitan Open Land. Ravensbourne Station is within a two-minute walk from the site, with Bromley Road running along its edge.
The existing entrance is to the northwest of the site at the end of Ravensbourne Avenue. There is further pedestrian access via an unmade track off Calmont Road/Warren Avenue, which is a public right of way.
The proposal seeks to accommodate the construction of 312, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments and commercial units, all of which will be private gated, with the aim to create a modern residential facility at a site which benefits from exceptional natural beauty and excellent rail connections to the centre of London.
For additional security and convenience, the development will include external, under croft parking. In addition to the proposed apartments, there is a generous space that will accommodate a variety of commercial buildings, which will benefit the community by offering local amenities such as a Gymnasium, Spa and Convenience Store.
