Biscuit Factory Brief History

The Bermondsey Biscuit Factory was built in 1885 and was the first of its kind in England. It was one of the largest employers in the area at the time providing jobs for over 1,000 local residents. The factory produced a variety of biscuits which were sold all over the world. In 2001, the factory closed its doors for the last time.

The redevelopment project aims to breathe new life into this historic site and create a vibrant mixed-use destination for both residents and businesses. We originally wrote a blog on the subject HERE. In short, the plans include homes, office space, retail outlets, restaurants, bars, and a public square. It is an exciting development that will surely transform Bermondsey. Earlier this week Greystar Real Estate Partners (1st September 2022) acquired the Grosvenor built-to-rent scheme and planning on the next steps.

Recent Updates on the Redevelopment

Demolition and construction are underway starting with the old school a few months ago. Since then, a number of new buildings have been planned and approved with positive movement skyward. Most notably, a new office block that will house start-ups and small businesses is now complete. This is just the beginning, with more office blocks, homes, and retail spaces set to be built in the coming months.

The Biscuit Factory project is part of a larger Bermondsey redevelopment push where boundaries from one project blend to the next. For example, the Blue Market is only steps away from the Biscuit Factory and connects by pedestrian walking paths. Both areas give homage to their history through their architectural design but with all the modern conveniences for a thriving community. This is an exciting time for Bermondsey as it undergoes a transformation into a trendy, sought-after location.
