Fulham, London

The site at Fulham Wharf is located to the South East of Townmead Road, in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. Situated on the North Bank of the River Thames, the brownfield redevelopment site was split into two phases – with the latter occupying a former Sainsburys supermarket and associated car park. Historically the site and surrounding areas had been occupied by numerous contaminative land uses; from as far back as the late 1890’s where a former brewery existed, through to the early 1970’s where investigations found numerous bulk storage tanks cast in-situ.
