Leading art dealer Jay Jopling, the name behind the prestigious White Cube galleries, has lodged a planning application to transform a derelict warehouse in south London into the latest must-see art gallery and exhibition space.

Jopling’s holding company, MYJ Services Ltd, has made the application to Southwark Council, to make the 2,278 square metre Bermondsey warehouse his fourth White Cube – the first being a small gallery in Duke Street, which opened in 1993 and is now no more, and the second being the larger White Cube in Hoxton Square. He more recently opened a third space in Mayfair.

As well as making the environs of the warehouse suitable for an art gallery, the application also asks permission to build a single-storey side extension and loading bay at the back of the building.

Residents have been asked to consider the warehouse plans and the council will consult experts on the project, with the final recommendation expected in a few weeks.
