While at Tesco I was responsible for acquiring, planning and construction of this landmark scheme, transforming a 1960s concrete multi-storey car park site into a multi-level, mixed-use building covering 8 floors, including 2 basements.

The overall project includes a foodstore, medical centre, café and a larger multi-storey car park. The scheme also includes 73 homes above the store, 52% of which will be affordable, making it easier for people on lower incomes to live in London. An on-site Bio-Fuel Energy Centre provides over 20% of electrical power to the store and homes, and helps the scheme achieve its aim of energy efficiency.

The building was completed in May 2009 and all flats were sold within six months.
