St Mark’s Square, Bromley

We are partners with the London Borough of Bromley in a £90m mixed-use PPP scheme to transform the southern end of Bromley Town Centre.  Our St Mark’s Square scheme is a new residential and leisure quarter with a landscaped public square surrounded by a nine screen multiplex VUE cinema, 25,000 sq ft of cafés and restaurants including Prezzo, Las Iguanas, Nandos and Turtle Bay, a 130-bedroom Premier Inn hotel, 200 private and affordable apartments and a new 400 space secure underground car park. In spring 2012, the London Borough of Bromley granted planning consent for the scheme. We started on site in April 2013 and are anticipating the completion of St Mark’s Square in Autumn 2015.

Our scheme saw the former 600 space Westmoreland Road car park demolished to be replaced with a high quality mixed-use leisure development as part of Bromley Council’s wider proposals to enhance the town centre economy and its cultural and recreational offering. 

Bromley is London’s largest borough but there is no multiplex cinema in the town centre. Over 1.3 million people live within a 30 minute drive of Bromley town centre and there is a core local population catchment of 300,000. 66% of them are ABC1 yet there are no high end family chain restaurants in the town centre.  Imagine the cars those people drive – yet there is real lack of quality, secure town centre car parking. Bromley is only 16 minutes from Victoria station, yet there is no quality branded business hotel nearby.  St Mark’s Square has being designed to take advantage of these anomalies. We expect it to create 220 jobs in Bromley, and provide a total of £220m GVA (Gross Value Added) to the local economy over the next 10 years.

We have placed a high priority on the quality as well as quantity of public realm, with a new landscaped piazza around which the cafés, restaurants and other amenities will be grouped, creating an attractive, managed, environment for families and groups of friends. 

We are committed to achieving Code For Sustainable Homes Level 3 across the residential element of our scheme together with a reduction of up to 30% on energy costs for residents through better insulation, good ventilation and the provision of an on-site combined heat and power system. St Mark’s Square is located one minute from Bromley South railway station (direct links to both Victoria and Blackfriars in less than 20 minutes), is a major benefit for future users and residents, helping them to use more sustainable patterns of transport. 

As part of our public consultations in July 2011, we held several nights of cinema on the top floor of the current Westmoreland Road car park. We transformed the space with comfy bean bags and deckchairs and served up posh hot dogs and popcorn for the good people of Bromley. 

During the same week we parked a shipping container outside the local library and Churchill Theatre and welcomed the public in to comment on our scheme.
