Regenerating Wandsworth Town

Wandsworth Town is going through a dramatic change of identity which has already seen the creation of hundreds of new homes and major improvements to the town centre. Several major developments are currently underway including:

Southside Shopping Centre – the transformation of Southside has brought dozens of popular fashion chains to the town centre along with a 14-screen Cineworld, Waitrose and Virgin Active health club. Owner Metro Shopping Fund has recently announced a pre-let to Debenhams, which will be the town’s first department store. This letting will kick-start a £40m redevelopment of part of the complex, which is due to complete in 2015.

The Filaments – comprising two adjacent sites just of Wandsworth High Street – this scheme will feature a total of 416 homes as well as 7,276 square metres of commercial/retail space and 182 parking spaces. The scheme will also provide new public space, a private garden and waters features. It includes new pedestrian links between King George’s Park and the high street.

Sainsbury’s Garratt Lane – the project is creating a larger supermarket with improved customer toilets, baby changing facilities, new ATMs and a click and collect counter. The scheme also includes a new Premier Inn Hotel for the town centre and new shop units for other retailers. There will also be a new café, learning centre and Shopmobility service for disabled customers. More than 200 new jobs will be created across the site.

Battersea Reach – this once derelict industrial estate to the east of Wandsworth Bridge has been transformed with hundreds of new homes, a new stretch of Thames riverside walk, public open spaces, bars, cafés, restaurants, shops as well as health and leisure facilities.

Wandsworth Riverside Quarter – this mixed-use development includes hundreds of homes, public spaces, a riverside walk and a range of commercial space including shops, cafes restaurants and offices. This site is located just to the west of Wandsworth Bridge where the River Wandle meets the Thames.
