Construction work is due to begin in earnest during December on the meanwhile site at Pope’s Rd in Brixton, once formal agreements are in place with Lambeth council.
In April 2014 architect Carl Turner partnered with landscape architects & urban designers, The Edible Bus Stop (EBS) and together they won a council run competition to develop the site. The structure of the original team has now changed and as a result the EBS has withdrawn from the project. They will be now focusing their efforts on another exciting meanwhile project, as part of “The Platform” in Loughborough Junction.
Going forward the scheme, formally known as Grow:Brixton, will be called POP Brixton.
