The Exchange consists of two neighbouring parcels of land in Bermondsey that we bought from Southwark Council. The building, with 205 units, was shortlisted for a New London Architecture award.

Our architect PCKO designed this scheme to be contemporary but also blend sympathetically with the historical street-scape. The construction was delivered in two phases to allow the Council to remain on site while they sought new premises.
The building incorporates a Sainsbury Local at ground floor and a gym for residents.

About The Exchange, Southwark
The site has been commended for the high provision of affordable housing, with all tenures being occupied quickly. Sales went extremely well and we generated an overage of £3.5 million for Southwark Council. We celebrated our landmark 30,000th home on this site in 2014.
