Borough Yards is bringing new life to an area rich with history

Situated in the London Borough of Southwark, next to the vibrant Borough Market, Borough Yards is bringing new life to an area rich with history.

Due for completion in 2021, it will feature five mixed-use buildings including Grade A workspace, retail, gallery, restaurants, cinema and creative spaces. The high-quality public realm scheme will restore and reinvent the lost medieval street pattern of the area adjacent to the world-famous food destination Borough Market.

Restoring and rejuvenating an important part of south London’s Victorian railway heritage, the landmark scheme will also re-purpose 8,500sqm of existing railway arches. The architectural design weaves together historic fabric with contemporary architecture and new public spaces, opening the site to its Bankside context and bringing new pedestrian routes and amenities to the area.

Borough has been hugely under-served by retail, given the needs of the local community, commuters who arrive at London Bridge, and the number of people exploring its iconic sights in this part of the capital. We want to bring Borough Yards to life with retail and hospitality partners who share our vision.
