closed permanently in May last year after Southwark Council approved plans to turn the building into an office block. It had been open for six years.According to the detailed proposal filed today (February 12), British Land and its partner AustralianSuper – one of the UK’s largest pension funds – are looking to redevelop the site in Rotherhithe into a “permanent cultural venue”.It also outlined that both are also in talks with Broadwick, the same electronic music and arts operator that ran Printworks previously, to operate the new venue, and the reimagined space would occupy half of the existing building.

This will include a new rooftop terrace space for performances, rehearsals, product launches or curated talks, as well as a smaller performance space called The Inkwells.The remaining half will become offices and shops, which will create spaces for around 1,500 workers.“What appeals to us about it is that it’s creating a new piece of city and a new district for London,” said Emma Cariaga, who is co-leading the project for British Land (via The Guardian). “We intend to create a permanent cultural venue and put it on the map globally.

Over the last six years, Printworks has become an iconic venue for electronic music and one of the top five clubs in the world.

But our plans seek to push that to deliver a much broader programme.”Before it became a live music venue, the site was once home to the printing presses for UK newspapers The Daily Mail and The Evening Standard.
