Bloom completes Brixton ultra-urban warehouse development for joint venture with TPG Angelo Gordon

Bloom, the ultra-urban industrial investor and developer, has completed the second development in central London for its £250 million ultra-urban warehouse joint venture with TPG Angelo Gordon.

Bloom Brixton, at 146-148 Brixton Hill, comprises five units, totalling 35,417 sq ft, designed by Chetwoods. The warehouses are multi storey across ground and first floors with goods lift access and were built to a BREEAM sustainability rating of ‘Excellent’ and an EPC rating of ‘A+’ in accord with Bloom’s core sustainability objective to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through construction and operational efficiency.

The warehouses include solar panelling, EV charging points, enhanced power capacity, green walls and roofs, 5.5m clear internal height across both floors, a 24-hour secure yard and net-zero carbon in operation, and deliver a biodiversity net gain.

Bloom Brixton has secured an array of planning uses including B8, B2, E(g) (iii) as well as a sui generis dark kitchen use.

The completion of the Brixton ultra-urban warehouse development follows that last November of Bloom Hackney, which provides two units, totalling 14,974 sq ft, designed by Michael Sparks Associates.

Since the inception of its joint venture with TPG Angelo Gordon in 2021, Bloom has acquired six London assets in Brixton, Greenwich, Hackney, Fulham, Camberwell, and Park Royal. The portfolio comprises a mix of extensive refurbishment and ground-up redevelopment projects with strong sustainability credentials – EPC ratings of ‘A’ or ‘A+’ and BREEAM ratings of ‘Very Good’, ‘Excellent’ or ‘Outstanding’ – in TfL Zones 2 and 3.

Sam McGirr, co-founder of Bloom, said: “Bloom Brixton is the second ground-up development that we have completed for our strategy to reimagine urban warehousing, by providing design-led, sustainable industrial units in supply-constrained inner London sub-markets. It has been designed to suit the needs of an enormous variety of different sectors. The flexibility of the space and its amenities make it ideal for sectors including last-mile logistics, trade counter, food and beverage, retail, film, manufacturing, e-commerce, R&D and dark kitchens”.
