The Dulwich Estate, a charity founded 400 years ago, has appointed Bruce Gillingham Pollard as its sole agent to secure suitable restaurant, retail or leisure operators for existing and upcoming available units within its portfolio. The portfolio includes property in Dulwich Village, (home to Gail’s, Jigsaw and Fired Earth), Herne Hill and West Dulwich.
The first assignment Bruce Gillingham Pollard are leasing is a new parade of shops 13-19 Croxted Road, West Dulwich, a former dairy site, which is being developed to provide a state of the art doctors surgery, 4 retail units on the ground floor, with 9 flats on the upper floors.
Tracey Pollard, a director at Bruce Gillingham Pollard said: “We are very excited to be working with The Dulwich Estate. The redevelopment of the former dairy site will not only enhance Croxley Road but will also make a positive contribution to the local community, providing a doctors’ surgery, additional shops, and housing to the area.”
The Estate comprises 1,500 acres of land given by Edward Alleyn in 1619. The Charity, formerly named ‘Alleyn's College of God's Gift at Dulwich’ was established to educate the poor and to provide relief to those in need of accommodation. These objectives are still carried out today by the Charity’s beneficiaries Christ’s Chapel of God’s Gift at Dulwich Charity, The Dulwich Almshouse Charity, Alleyn’s School, Dulwich College, James Allen’s Girls’ School, Central Foundation Schools of London, St Olave’s & St Saviour’s Schools Foundation.
