Some history:

This site was originally built in 1890 as Kops Brewery, a highly successful company at the time that brewed non-alcoholic beverages. However, the decline of the temperance movement lead to non-alcoholic drinks falling from popularity, and resulted in Convoys, who packed fruit and other food and goods taking over the brewery sometime after the second world war.
Sainsbury’s has submitted plans for its Fulham Wharf project. The 7.8 acre site currently houses a Sainsbury’s store and car park, and a large derelict wharf building. Sainsbury’s bought the wharf building in April 2009 from Ballymore for around £30m.
Ballymore, which bought the building for £30m from Tesco in autumn 2007, had planned a similar scheme but chose to sell the site when it began reducing its development exposure.
The Sainsbury’s store next to the site will remain open while a 100,000 sq ft supermarket and the first residential phase are built at Fulham Wharf. The original store will then be demolished and the second residential phase developed.
Visited with Catullus.
This was a very easy, relaxed explore. There's lots of evidence of junkies - watch out down in the basement as there are needles littered everywhere.
