Another housing proposal and hotel in Greenwich town centre

I was down around Deptford Creek recently and the large number of developments now underway are really making themselves known. The whole landscape is changing fast. I’ll do some follow posts about that, but whilst walking I realised I’d not covered one scheme which went in for planning last summer.

View from Norman Road

Plans were submitted to replace a 1950s building on Norman Road with a block for 60-70 flats rising up to 11 storeys in height. The architects are bptw, who were also behind the buildings at the north of Norman Road and currently have office space in the existing building.

The current building going isn’t a great loss. Tacky appendages did not help its appearance.

The planning application mentions that a 30 bed hotel has approval behind the North Pole pub. Here’s the spot:

Here’s a render of the hotel:

The planned flats over the road from the hotel have two tone brickwork and incorporate an arch.

There’s so much more going on in the area that I’ll run some follow-up stories of changes in the area over coming days looking at new developments including Essential Living’s tower by Creek Road whose concrete core is now at 20 storeys, and also covering continuing neglect by Greenwich council of an estate in the middle of all this.

It’s one I’ve covered a few times, and once again external areas were in bad shape when I was there. One part of the brickwork is now so damaged and loose that it’s an invite for litigation when it falls on someone (it’s at toddler height) which will cost taxpayers dearly.

Much more on what’s happening in Deptford, Greenwich and Charlton coming next week.

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

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.
