In the heart of Bermondsey’s “Biscuit Town” regeneration area, new flats in Bombay Street are on the site of a warehouse used by food firm Peek Freans to store Christmas puddings and wedding cakes, including one made for the marriage of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer.
The new seven-storey building looms over railway tracks and celebrates industrial chic, with floor-to-ceiling windows, feature brickwork and zinc cladding.
All 11 flats have outside space and there is a communal roof terrace with impressive views.
A new community garden is being created, while connected railway arches will be refurbished for food and drink spaces. From £450,000. Call Kalmars (020 7403 0600).
Design creep from Borough Market and London Bridge has brought artisan food and craft shops here, while a potential bonus for early buyers is the Bakerloo line Tube extension from Elephant & Castle to New Cross Gate.
Preliminary work is under way, with two new Old Kent Road stations expected to boost local property values.
