It will be a mixed-use site comprising of 2,800 homes together with a 130,000 sq ft Sainsbury's store and will see the development of the historic Porta Bella Dock as a canal basin.

The development is a partnership between Ballymore and Sainsbury's, taking up the last available brownfield site in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, with it stated that the new store will provide a fresh, modern approach to trading with increased capacity for home delivery services.

The agreement will ensure the present store remains open until the new one opens, with early consultation already under way.
