A £45 million transport “dowry” from developers is being used to create a new two-way gyratory system and much-improved public realm. Enclosed by high walls, the six-acre brewery site fronts the River Wandle and has been inaccessible to the public for generations but is now set to become a new “quarter”, with 669 homes, bars, restaurants, shops and loft-style offices, plus a museum and microbrewery.

Wandsworth town centre developments where flats are available now include The Filaments, formerly a gas mantle factory. The 416-home complex is set to become a mini village, with offices and shops, a public square, gardens with water features and much-coveted private parking spaces. Show apartments are open for viewing. Prices from £325,000. Call 0845 077 9770.
