Construction company Wates has started works on a £300m mixed-use redevelopment near Borough Market in South London.
Former Vinopolis venue closed in back in 2015 and will now be turned into a new shopping and restaurant complex which developer Meyer Bergman has named ‘Borough Yards’.
The plans will aim to restore some of the medieval street patterns, with several historic street names being brought back such as Clink Yard, Dirty Lane and Soap Yard. Many hope that the new destination will reflect the past and present but also show the work and play side of life in London.
In keeping with the mix of modern and historic Victorian brick railway viaducts will open up to allow for pedestrians and retail units.
