WELCOME TO THE VINEGAR YARD WEBSITE
HERE YOU CAN FIND OUT ABOUT OUR PLANS FOR REDEVELOPING THIS IMPORTANT SITE.
November 2021 UPDATE
CIT is the Development Manager for St Thomas Bermondsey Limited and is working in partnership with architectural design firm KPF on the proposals for the Vinegar Yard site at the heart of London Bridge.
Our vision for Vinegar Yard is a building for health and creativity. We have worked closely with Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to design a building for NHS clinical uses, medical, or research and development uses. The design and uses will complement the character of Old Bermondsey and deliver real social value to its communities.
The building is designed to be part of the new SC1 Life Science & Innovation District (SC1) in London Bridge, which is being jointly promoted by the NHS Trust, Kings Health Partners, Lambeth Council and Southwark Council. SC1 will accelerate new innovations in healthcare and research and development for the benefit of local communities, London and the UK.
In May 2021, we updated the community on the focused adjustments made to the scheme in response to feedback received at Southwark’s Planning Committee and to meet the requirements of the Greater London Authority following the Mayor of London calling in the planning application.
CIT has taken the time to reflect on the feedback received during the first community update and to further consider and discuss with the Greater London Authority a few elements of the design and some further focussed updates to the proposals in response. The purposes of these adjustments have been to embed healthcare and research uses in the building and to make improvements to the ground level and massing of the building.
