Blackheath Station Car Park Commercial: Sq Ft TBC Residential: Sq Ft TBC

Mizzen Yard, Cumberland Road, Bristol

Investment with future potential Acorn has purchased Blackheath Railway Station car park from Network Rail, identifying a significant opportunity to unlock the potential of this underused site.

Commercial: 15,000 Sq Ft (Class E) Residential: 18,000 Sq Ft

The site is positioned in a prime residential area of London, set within a conservation area and is surrounded by Georgian and Victorian housing. The station itself is set in the heart of the village and is the location for the Sunday Farmers’ Market.

Investing to maximise potential Acorn has purchased a commercial business centre located on Spike Island. The prominent site is set in a highly accessible location Southwest of the city centre, within Bristol’s city docks conservation area. The investment comprises a number of buildings around a central grassed forecourt, which has been poorly managed for a number of decades. It is Acorn’s intention to refurbish the building extensively and provide better communal facilities including showers, bike storage

and changing rooms. Acorn also intends to reinvigorate the central grass forecourt to allow amenity space for tenants. This property will then be retained by Acorn’s long-term investment portfolio. The site includes a listed Georgian building with an extensive unused basement which will be refurbished into a self-contained office unit, with a separate entrance to be constructed. In addition, the site has extensive car parking and Acorn is applying for planning permission

for a mixed-use commercial and residential scheme on part of this site. The new planned layout will provide increased and enhanced workspace with excellent communal facilities and includes the restoration of the listed building. The development on the underused car park will provide much needed residential accommodation in one of the city’s most vibrant harbourside communities.

It is Acorn’s intention to optimise the use of this site for mixed-use commercial space and residential development, whilst retaining the car park in the long term. The redevelopment provides an exciting regeneration opportunity that would include the provision of public parking spaces to support Blackheath Farmer’s Market and other amenities for the local community, making a positive contribution to the town centre.

Baltic Wharf, Totnes

Following Acorn’s ‘different by design’ ethos, we also have a significant number of bespoke residential schemes that, where appropriate, include high-quality commercial elements, producing a varied and diverse portfolio of schemes that successfully create value and make the most of every opportunity.

Bear Lane, London, SE1 B1 with Ground Retail: 52,894 Sq Ft (NIA) New Build & Railway Arch Conversion: 22,299 Sq Ft (NIA)

The Old Printworks, Frome

Market Quay, Falmouth

(Use: A1, A2, A3, A4, B1, D1, D2)

Identifying the optimum creative solution Acorn purchased three sites and a number of railway arches just south of the Tate Modern from Network Rail and an adjoining owner. Acorn’s vision is to create a mix of commercial and leisure space which will form its own unique creative hub and an important part of the ongoing regeneration of this fantastic part of London. The scheme

Harbour Lofts, Poole will not only bring forward new offices, gallery and creative retail space but will also improve public realm pedestrian links in the area. Southwark Council are seeking to create London’s version of New York’s High Line which they have christened the Low Line, being a series of pedestrian walkways adjacent to the many railway arches

throughout London’s South Bank, providing retail, leisure and employment space for both the local community and tourists. This purchase was made without planning consent in place and involved complex Planning Overages and Sales Overages to ensure that Network Rail obtained the best possible land value.

New Build Residential: 17,344 Sq Ft (NIA) 19 Residential Units

Recognising potential Acorn purchased the 8-storey 1970s office block in central Bournemouth, seeing the opportunity to refresh the building and turn it into a successful mixed-use scheme. The distinct copper and brown building was named The Chocolate Box. The ground floor banking premises were retained and Acorn provided commercial space over the next two floors as well as converting the remaining six floors into fifty-four sensibly priced first-time buyer and investor apartments. Subsequently, Acorn obtained planning permission for side and upper floor extensions comprising an additional 10 apartments and five duplex penthouses with panoramic sea and cityscape views.

Recognising potential Valentine was a derelict public house in a prime position between Weston Street and Long Lane in London’s South Bank. The site had been available for 2 years prior to Acorn entering into a joint venture with the Landowner. The site had planning for thirteen residential units above ground floor offices however Acorn redesigned the scheme and created nineteen residential units with an improved ground floor layout to include A1 use. This allowed the unit to be of interest to major retailers, which Acorn identified, letting and selling the investment to Sainsbury’s Local.
