The large warehouse was purchased earlier this year, and has high ceilings with good lighting, ripe to become a significant component of the London art scene. Plans for the space include a large piazza entrance, a 60-70 seat auditorium and two separate galleries within, and storage for artwork along the inside perimeter of the building, according to London SE1.

Plans must first be approved by Southwark Council, which rejected the previous proposal for a 7- story residence on the site in 2008.
