Nothing up on the website yet - but they've cleared the space as you can see here:Anyone seen any prices to buy "off plan"?
So the not for profit "Places for People" , who had the site before, must have sold it onto Barratt homes.Nothing up on the website yet - but they've cleared the space as you can see here:
I heard Barratt Homes just bought that planning proposal, so it looks this hefty development is what we'll be getting:This was the original Places for People application for the site. It must have been renewed as was agreed in 2007 with 3 years to implement.
No mention of a public square then, so it looks like Brixton Square will in fact be Brixton GerrOffMyLand Square.06/04037/FUL | Redevelopment of the site involving demolition of the existing buildings and erection of part-five and part-seven storey building with a lower ground floor to provide 155 residential units comprising 54 x 1 bed, 90 x 2 bed, 6 x 3 bed and 5 x 4 bed and 923 sqm of commercial floorspace (Class A1, A2, and B1), together with provision of internal courtyard, with 2 disabled car parking spaces, cycle stores, refuse store, a roof garden at first floor level, landscaping and boundary treatment.

If Places for People had made sure the planning permission was current it would have be part of the deal when the land was sold. Should mean they got better price for land.I heard Barratt Homes just bought that planning proposal, so it looks this hefty development is what we'll be getting:

If there are any further large developments like this we should make sure the planning permission is personal to the applicants or RISE UP!Barratt buys in Brixton
Barratt Homes has bought the land at 368-372 Coldharbour Lane in Brixton, SW9, for [pounds sterling]8.5m. The site has planning permission from Lambeth council for 155 homes across seven floors. The vendor, Places for People, was advised by Cluttons; Barratt Homes was unrepresented.
Will it be gated?If Places for People had made sure the planning permission was current it would have be part of the deal when the land was sold. Should mean they got better price for land.
It will be private square. Calling something a square seems to be latest thing. It sounds good to call it a square.
Quite - and there's one round the corner at Loughborough Junction (above the former Warrior ph). I'm beginning to think that Lambeth Planning respond best to applications inspired by Fascist Italy (but without the design values).Is there a more miserable, soul-destroying phrase than 'gated community'?
Maybe the Barratt thingy will qualify then. But you could hardly call the Warrior a concierge, could you. Just crap design IMHO."Gated community" means something like this:
When an apartment block has a gate to restrict access to its carpark/back yard, then it's not a gated community, it's just an apartment block.
Remember they're still paying off their section 106 contribution at £13,000 a month. I expect they are watching their cash-flow.Talking of back yards, it's incredible to see that the adjacent new build is still unfinished along its Valentia Place flank, with breeze block walls still exposed.
Brixton Village, a new culinary and cultural hub full of buzzing cafes, restaurants and bars is located adjacent to Brixton Square
