Brockley Road Sainsbury's confirmed

Simon Hosking of Boultbee, the developers of 180 Brockley Road, confirms the story we reported yesterday - that they have agreed a lease for the main retail unit with Sainsbury's. He says:

"The new retail space has been let to Sainsbury’s under a "green lease". It was important to ensure that the retail space reflects our design and sustainability-led approach, so the team strived hard to achieve the BREEAM Excellent rating, which is the highest level possible rating. The BREEAM Excellent rating includes high levels of insulation, increased ecology through the incorporation of a green roof, energy efficient plant and equipment, reduced water consumption, as well as detailed waste management strategy."

"The 4,000 sq ft store will also create approximately 25 local jobs. We believe the store will help to enhance the overall area."
