Oddbins Wine Merchant at the junction of Armoury Way and Old York Road has been knocked down and will be replaced with a four storey office and retail building. 1562 square metres of floorspace was been given planning consent by Wandsworth Council this Spring.

The Oddbins building and carpark had been in place on the site since 1964, just a year after the company was founded in 1963. Wandsworth-based property management company, Dunward Properties Ltd, are proposing to develop the site into an office and retail space.

Following this week’s news that Old York Road, between the one-way system and Homebase, will be closed to traffic so that its pubs, bars and restaurants can reopen, building traffic in and out of the site is to be closely monitored to avoid congestion on the one-way system.

Construction management company Proma said they are “doing everything they can to minimise the disruption to everyone in the area”.

Work started in May and is due to last until approximately the end of 2021.

Odd Bins as it used to be

Oddbins went into administration in January 2019 and while a substantial part of the business was sold to an undisclosed buyer in June this year, some of its sites including Wandsworth had already been sold off.
