Martin's Yard unwrapped

Friend of BC, Richard went to get his bike fixed at Brockley Bikes this weekend and got these pictures of Martin's Yard in the process. The new street will consist mostly of live-work units and after a bit of delay, is now nearly finished.

Richard says:

You get a much better view of the development from in the business park than from the road and was surprised how advanced everything was. The development is looking very advanced and they just seem to be finishing off the balconies / walkways and a few bits of external cladding.

The development is intended to create a new little enterprise hub in Brockley, which will boost local employment and opportunity for other local businesses.  We've heard from at least a couple of businesses hoping to move in there when it opens, but it will be a big test of how attractive Brockley has become as a business location.

Ah, so no retail space, as originally proposed?

I don't think it ever stated retail?

Would be great if one of the units was a cafe or similar - bring a bit of life to the business area ...

-Residential units all sold-Building works due to complete in February 2013-Commercial sales launch in March 2013

They did well to sell all residential already!

I don't think retail was ever proposed. They've always wanted this to be for offices / studios. Likewise, no cafes.

Any idea if you will be able to rent desk space for 1 or 2 desks in the premises or if it is a case of a business to take on each unit?

I don't think there are any shared spaces, but worth double checking.
