Completed - Blackfriars Road Central
Ten storey residential development by Linden Homes, scheduled to complete Autumn 2015. Five retail units will include new homes for established local businesses Blackfriars Café and the launderette.
July Updates NEW
The tower crane was erected weekend of 7- 8 June; the project apologies for the longer weekend working following delivery issues. Bulk excavation is now complete and the frame is progressing out of the ground.
Local labour update
Two previously unemployed residents of Southwark have recently been employed on the project: one, who had been working as an agency labourer since February has now been employed directly by Linden Homes and the other is an apprentice who has been on site for about 6 weeks.
Piling and follow on works
Linden Homes commenced piling works on 17 March at the Blackfriars Road Central. This is currently running to programme with an expected completion date of 5 May 2014. The first project newsletter has been issued to local residents following a meeting with the BARD. Following the piling the concrete frame will commence and be completed by January 2015.
Disabled access is catered for by use of additional ramps at each end of the hoarding. Following the piling the concrete frame will commence and be completed by January 2015.
