Life-sciences hub gets the go-ahead.

Vinegar Yard.

Vinegar Yard, a new 20-storey life-sciences mixed-use development in London Bridge in Southwark, has just been recommended for planning consent from the Greater London Assembly.

Designed in partnership with Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, the scheme will boast 8,207 m² for NHS clinical uses, medical activities, research and development purposes as well as office space. We’re working alongside Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF) for our client CIT to provide structural, geotechnical and civil engineering services and realise this new innovative building, which all key stakeholders agree will create a ‘global quarter of high-impact healthcare innovation’.

Vinegar Yard will not only connect the benefits of life-science centres within a thriving, diverse community, but its design and use will complement the character of Old Bermondsey and deliver real social value to its neighbourhood, London and the UK.

“Vinegar Yard will be a truly transformative development that will unlock this site’s potential as a place for health and creativity. It will drive improvements to health and wealth across the area, creating jobs and contributing to London’s post-Covid recovery.”

The scheme marks another chapter in AKT II’s involvement in the engineering design of life science research centres and the redevelopment of this part of London. We’ll share more about this project as it advances through planning.
