“ We cannot support the proposals due to the harm caused to Bermondsey Street Conservation Area by the proposed tall building above the historic warehouse at Vinegar Yard.
We would welcome a revised design for a less intensive development within the conservation area that also retains the integrity of the warehouse building as a separate structure. ”
- Historic England
“ The proposed plans would render the remains of the warehouse as wallpaper to the plinth of a glass office block... It is important that despite its proximity to London Bridge, Bermondsey maintains its own historic individuality, and any development should be sympathetic to the area and its character. ”
- Victorian Society
“ ..a particularly apposite example of local character, which also possesses heritage significance in accordance with Historic England guidance retaining architectural, aesthetic and historic merit through strong association with the development of the area. We believe the successful retention, repair and reuse of the building could be achieved with sympathetic additions that do not harm the heritage assets. ”
