Kier favourite for Greenland Group’s £600m Ram Brewery

Exclusive: Kier is understood to be in pole position to build the first phase of Greenland Group’s £600m Ram Brewery development in south-west London.

The site covers 3.1 ha and has planning consent for 661 new homes and 9,500 sq m of commercial space (pictured).

Work will include the demolition of non-listed buildings and the construction of two 12-storey buildings, as well as a 36-storey tower.

Architect EPR has designed the residential tower, which met with opposition from residents earlier this month.

Residents opposed Wandsworth Council’s decision to grant permission for an application to increase the height of the residential tower by 2.72 m at the historic site.

Subject to conditions, the height extension would see the overall number of homes increase from 661 to 675.

Residents objected to the additional height showing “no concern” for the local area, and also complained that more flats would put a strain on local amenities.

Ram Brewery was the first of two property projects to be signed by the Chinese developer over three months.

The second saw Greenland Group make a further £600m investment in Canary Wharf’s Hertsmere site for the delivery of 700 new homes in a 242 m tower, as well as retail, leisure and commercial space.

Both Kier and Greenland Group have been contacted for comment.
