Update on Lewisham developments

The forthcoming student block beside Lewisham rail station is now rising at a brisk pace. Named Sherwood Court, it will comprise 142 flats and accommodate 410 students. I took this photo whilst passing on a train, facing the sun, on a crap camera. It’s not great:

Given the rate of progress I’m guessing they hope to have at least half of it occupied by the start of the new academic year in September. It’s pre-fabricated construction has ensured quick progress to date. Here’s how the finished article should look:

Over the road is the 400-flat Thurston development. Asda and a 24/7 gym will open there. No confirmed dates yet, and some work on the ground floor commercial space continues.

Consultation on future development at Lewisham Retail Park will occur on Thursday 3rd March from 4-7pm and Saturday 5th from 11am-3pm at Glass Mill leisure centre. This site currently comprises Sports Direct, Mothercare, Family Bargains and Matalan. Scoping reports for this site included ideas for a 26 storey tower and 525 homes.

At Lewisham Gateway, which is the big site directly in front of the station that has seen massive alterations to the road network, work has commenced on a third building. It’s only up to the first floor at the moment, but a newly re-positioned webcam should show progress in coming weeks and months. Here’s another poor phone pic of the main tower:

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
