Camberwell Union

Burgess Park is a public park situated in Camberwell, Southwark. This 4 acre industrial site borders the park on its southern boundary, adjacent to an area set aside for wildlife habitat.

This scheme comprises 50,000 sq ft of new retail, creative office and affordable workspace at ground and first floor with over 400 new homes planned in blocks of 4 to 13 storeys.  Crucial to the scheme’s success is the creation of new animated public realm and links to the public park in order to support local integration, enhance sense of place and ultimately lead to greater long term commercial success as the asset will be retained for long term investment.

Opera have also provided development management for the masterplan and project management of team towards the submission of a full planning application.  The planning process has involved several pre-apps to negotiate the optimum scheme  in terms of balancing the housing needs in the borough, the townscape effect and the viability constraints. Given its location there has been an extensive public consultation process. Planning submission is anticipated for January 2021.
