The Ram Quarter, London

London

The Ram Quarter is a £1bn new residential and retail quarter, combining contemporary living with iconic heritage at the historic Young’s Brewery site.  The masterplan brings together mixed use development through a tight knit set of new city blocks that complement the character of the site and existing historic buildings.

In total, the scheme delivers over 10,000m2 of commercial space and close to 700 residential units in a car free environment. The mixed residential offer includes apartments largely in mid rise development between 5 and 10 storeys, high rise living within a 36 storey tower, a range of townhouses and loft style living in the former industrial buildings.

The centre piece of the masterplan is the 11 grade II and II* listed iconic buildings of the former brewery. These buildings provide the entry point into the site from the high street and also set the tone for the wider development. New use classes introduced into these buildings include residential (C3), retail/restaurants (A1-A4), heritage centre (D1) and microbrewery (B2).  At the rear of these buildings, a new square is created which provides a focal point for the development and generates routes into the wider masterplan.
