What we've done

Valentine, SE1

Valentine was a derelict public house in a prime position between Weston Street and Long Lane in London’s South Bank.

Acorn entered into a joint venture with the landowner and obtained enhanced planning permission, increasing the site’s potential and profitability. Acorn managed the funding, construction and sales process.

The ground floor commercial space was reorganised to make it suitable for a blue chip tenant which Acorn London then identified.

The Chocolate Box, Bournemouth

Acorn South was approached to purchase Heron House, an unattractive 8-storey 1970s office block in central Bournemouth, we immediately saw the potential to refresh the building and turn it into a successful mixed-use scheme.

The copper and brown building was named The Chocolate Box. The ground floor banking premises were retained and Acorn South provided over 14,000 sq ft of commercial space over the next two floors and converted the remaining six floors of the existing building to create fifty-four sensibly priced first-time buyer and investor apartments. Subsequently, we obtained planning permission for side and upper floor extensions comprising an additional 10 apartments and five duplex penthouses.
