1-7 Gastineau Yard, Loughborough Junction, SW9 7AH
Timeline: From 2023
LJ Works is a brand new purpose-built, low-cost neighbourhood work space in Loughborough Junction for diverse businesses to grow and develop, in turn creating and safeguarding jobs in the area.
The site was previously used by the Loughborough Farm, who have remained on the site during the construction of the project, growing and supplying food through their Farm Café at nearby Wyck Gardens. Designated as an employment site, it will intensify employment activity by meeting strong, identified local demand for workshops, office space and shared work and makerspaces. LJ Works consists of two new buildings which are connected by a yard and growing space managed by the Loughborough Farm. ‘The Front Building’ offers self-contained studio spaces whereas ‘The Rear Building’ will house a coffee roastery, a coworking space and messy workshop spaces for makers.
Meanwhile Space will operate LJ Works with a focus on creating a professional work environment and the long-term ambition to empower a local community organisation to take over the management. We are collaborating with Old Spike, Loughborough Farm, and local businesses to deliver the key components of this project – LJ Works will include:
The workshops, offices will be managed by Meanwhile Space and these spaces are for start ups and micro businesses looking to swap their kitchen table for their own dedicated workspace.
Loughborough Farm community food growing project have dedicated growing space for fresh vegetables and fruit, as well a purpose built ‘Wild Mind Garden’.
