We are delighted to announce that we have recently completed on the purchases of both the Dock Manager’s Office and 1-14 Dock Offices behind Surrey Quays Road and Deal Porters Way in Canada Water.
The acquisition of these historic Grade II listed buildings, which were previously on the edge of the Canada Water Masterplan site, represents an exciting opportunity to improve the setting of the Dock Office buildings by integrating them into the masterplan proposals. A key focus will be how the masterplan public realm proposals can extend to the site, and enhance this important piece of the docks’ heritage.
There is no intention to change the appearance of the buildings, which in any case are listed and therefore benefit from significant protection in terms of planning. The status of the tenants within the building remains unchanged and we expect to continue with the existing maintenance arrangements and suppliers. Our management team will be visiting the tenants over the coming weeks to introduce themselves.
We are continuing to review the masterplan proposals. Topic sessions will take place along with further consultation on the masterplan in winter 2016/17, ahead of a planning submission expected in 2017. Please contact us to register your interest in future events.
