London SE1 website team

A stream of curious people and hopeful buyers flooded into Clink Street for the first open evening at Victor Wharf.

Reports that Hollywood actress Minnie Driver was after a 450,000 apartment in Victor Wharf has suddenly raised interest in the new development on the corner of Clink Street and Stoney Street.

The site was once the riverside kitchens of Winchester Palace where banquets were prepared for such guests as Henry VIII, Katharine of Aragon and Mary I.

Concern has been expressed over the striking new seven-storey building's height blocking the sky view from the street through the surviving rose window of the palace hall. The architects for the fourteen apartment development are CZWG who have retained a listed wall in the entrance.

The agents are Stirling Ackroyd in nearby Borough Market.
