Mortlake’s Stag Brewery is set to be redeveloped following the decision by current owners AB InBev to bring the site to market.
The 21.2-acre riverside site – situated in a prime residential location on the south bank of the Thames adjacent to Chiswick Bridge – represents one of South West London’s most prominent development opportunities. Property consultancy Gerald Eve has been appointed as sole agent to market the freehold.
An adopted planning brief, produced through discussions with the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and the public, sets out a vision for the future redevelopment of the site as a high-density residential-led scheme. The aim of the planning brief is to create vibrant links between the river and the town, incorporating a mixture of uses including restaurants, cafés and small retail space alongside community leisure uses, a museum and boathouses.
Alex Gillington, partner at Gerald Eve overseeing the sale of the site, said: “With its riverside position and location within one of London’s most-affluent and in-demand boroughs, this site is one of the capital’s most exceptional development sites and as such is anticipated to generate considerable demand.
“The site’s flexibility represents a unique opportunity to create a new destination in South West London, a new village heart for Mortlake that will radically transform the area with buildings and open public realm of the highest quality.”
The site has a history of brewing beer and sits next to Chiswick Bridge, the finish line of the annual Boat Race between the rowing teams of Oxford and Cambridge universities. The site currently includes 353,000 sq ft of existing accommodation associated with the brewing process, set across a number of non-listed buildings.
