The Filaments is a residential led mixed use development that is situated within the heart of the London Borough of Wandsworth. Due to an ongoing £1 billion town centre regeneration project the area is currently receiving huge investment and undergoing a significant transformation, which has resulted in an increase in retail, leisure, employment and delivery of commercial floor space. Wandsworth Town Centre is a lively hub in the affluent South West London borough. It is well served by excellent communication links and defined by an expansive and eclectic mix of shops, clubs, pubs and restaurants.The Filaments scheme is situated along Buckhold Road which acts as a main transport/traffic artery into Wandsworth Town Centre and neighbouring South West London boroughs. The subject opportunity occupies a prominent position opposite to the recently extended and trading Southside Shopping Centre and adjacent to Workspace’s Light Bulb office scheme. Wandsworth High Street and Garret Lane are within a 2 & 5 minutes’ walk away, with the picturesque and elegant Kings George Park located opposite the scheme. The scheme is within a well-established and successful retail and office location. The town centre regeneration project has resulted in the extension of Southside Shopping Centre to now provide 650,000 sq ft of retail space. Established retailers such as Debenhams, Café Nero and Planet Organic have recently acquired floor space to join existing commercial occupiers such as Waitrose, Topshop and Virgin Active. The continued mixed use development has clearly increased the residential and commercial popularity of the area, which in turn has further enhanced Wandsworth Town Centre as a key retail and office destination.
