Demolition underway in Greenwich for new riverside flats (and snaps of other developments nearby)

A small 1980s block is being demolished at a riverside spot in Greenwich. The new block will be 10-storeys high and located beside New Capital Quay.

I covered this block in a previous post here.

New Capital Quay and Fuller’s Sail Loft pub are on the right of new block in this render

It appears a bit similar to River Gardens, located a few hundred metres away towards the Peninsula, which I noticed yesterday had a new concrete core appear for the next block.

This spot on the river affords views of Enderby Wharf and Precision developments, located beside River Gardens:

And nearby it seems the concrete core of Essential Living’s 100% private rental tower by the Creek has topped out:

Deptford Creek tower

Those squat 1980s/90s yellow brick blocks, similar in appearance to that being demolished further east, look ripe for change. They are office space and not residential.

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.

    The demolition started a couple of weeks ago, so far they only seem to have cleared some of the paving. By the way, it’s say to see the old loyal briton pub just going to waste next door, think they forced out the previous occupiers 2 yrs ago but no-one seems to want to build there now..

    Re the -yellow brick blocks-, they were probably built the same time as the whole Millennium quays development, so only about 10-15 yrs old? Although not pretty and only offices, I doubt they would go anytime soon (first the cement factory please).

    Do you know if River gardens will have 1 or 2 more phases in total?
