Ebury Edge is a temporary (2020-2024) creative hub a short walk from Victoria and Pimlico stations. Meanwhile Space, working in partnership with Westminster City Council, have transformed the site into a multi-purpose place for local creatives, entrepreneurs and residents. The project forms part of the wider regeneration of Ebury Bridge Estate which will see the outdated current estate replaced by a new quarter in a phased approach.
The development provides a mix of private studios, retail units and affordable workspace aligned around a central community courtyard. A public facing unit (the former café) and a community hall in the adjacent building assure that local residents benefit from the spaces and a new focal point for the area is created. All spaces are let on a fair rent policy, on flexible terms and with no upfront deposits. Combined with a people-focused approach, this policy creates varying positive impacts from business growth, job creation and increased footfall to business venues, for both shopping and leisure.
Ebury Edge is a friendly, inclusive, and multi-disciplinary workspace, shopping destination and communal space for local people. A variety of business, from start-ups to social entrepreneurs to creatives now make it their place of work and leisure. The “Meanwhile use” nature of the scheme takes advantage of the pauses in the normal commercial property cycle to bring maximum benefit to the community.
