The scheme, designed by Collado Collins, will comprise more than 37,000 sq ft of retail space, around 60 flats, parking and a ‘rooftop meadow’, according to Property Week.
Tesco say their scheme is a complex project which reflects the sensitive location, integrating into the High Street, and providing a new community facility for All Saints Church. It is a new application for a site given permission for a mixed use scheme several years ago, and is, say Tesco, broadly welcomed by the local community, with who they have consulted extensively while preparing the application.
The scheme includes parking, which is popular with local traders. Tony Hylton, who runs The Temperance on Fulham High Street, says: “We welcome the proposed redevelopment and the addition of retail and parking spaces in the area. At present there are few facilities on the north side of the river. The scheme has the potential to add greatly to the local area and community.”
John Jackson, of home letting agent Hooper & Jackson is also supportive of the scheme: “I very much support the proposal to redevelop to site. The
end of Fulham High Street is in urgent need of regeneration and has been semi-derelict for far too long.”
