Tesco Express coming to New Kent Road

Although images produced as part of Vision Homes' planning application for the development of 15 flats included a Tesco Express fascia on the ground floor, it is only now that the supermarket chain's firm interest in the site has been confirmed.

Tesco has applied to Southwark Council for permission to install plant and louvres for the proposed store on the ground floor of the Metropolis development.

The proposed new Tesco Express is located just 500 metres from Tesco Metro at the Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre and 600 metres from Tesco Express in Tower Bridge Road.

Even though it is a relatively small scheme, Vision Homes has held overseas sales exhibitions for Metropolis, selling several properties off-plan at an event in Singapore last year.

Metropolis is currently under construction on a site formerly occupied by a motorbike repair shop.
