Developer Cathedral Group has reached a major milestone on its landmark Bromley South Central scheme, with the start of excavation work on its basement build.

South Central: piling work has started

Piling rigs are now on site ready to create the lining structure for what will be the £90 million development’s nine-screen VUE Cinema  complex and 400-space underground car park.

As well as the cinema and 200 homes, the South Central development will include a 130-bedroom hotel, pre-let to Premier Inn, and 2,250sq metres of café and restaurant space, part of which has been pre-let to national chains Nandos, Prezzo and Las Iguanas.

Earlier this year, Hermes Real Estate Investment Management agreed a partnership deal to put £54.9 million into the scheme, which is also receiving £9.5 million in funding from Homes and Communities Agency.

The development is being delivered by McLaren Construction and is scheduled for completion in autumn 2015.
