The site has been cleared and work is well underway on this development which has been mired in debate for several years and caused considerable local angst, and, to be fair, anticipation. The placards indicate that it will include a leisure centre (including swimming pools, sports hall, fitness suites and ice rink), 250 new homes, 60,000 square feet of retail "offering" (eh?), parking for up to 540 vehicles, and, the crowning glory, a new bus turnaround facility. The sign is rather coy about the financial involvement of Tesco, which will be availing itself of a considerable chunk of that retail "offering". The main construction company is Vinci. Lambeth Council expect construction "to be completed towards the end of 2013".
What has been demolished so that all this may arise is everything on the west side of the High Road between Natal Road and Streatham Station except the small block immediately south of the station, the United Reformed Church and (oddly) the couple of shops on the corner of Natal Road. So, the left-hand bit of this TQ3071 : 374-382 Streatham High Road, this TQ3071 : Ice Rink, Streatham High Road, this TQ3071 : Swimming Pool, Streatham High Road and this TQ3071 : Former bus garage have all gone. A temporary ice rink is available in Brixton. View from the south: TQ3071 : Streatham Regeneration Project, Streatham High Road (1).
