Lewisham developments progressing quickly

As recently covered, the big student block by the station named ‘Sherwood Court’ is rising quickly. Whilst changing trains at the station last week I took a couple of photos showing progress:

410 students will be living there. Should bring a bit of buzz about the place. Hopefully some decent cafes, pubs and restaurants will start to move into some nearby units. Once complete it should look like this. Below is the view from Thurston Road:

Work is also progressing on next door’s Flora Villa development:

And the facade of the main blocks by the station are clearer to see:

Alongside these, the third building of that development is now underway. It was just reaching three-storeys when I passed – I think it’s now up another level.

The webcam looking over the site can be seen here. And by the summer the road layout should be mainly finished, which will allow an easier walk from the station to the town centre. Maybe.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you
