Flats plan for Greenwich sorting office

Plans are in the redevelop the former sorting office in Greenwich into nine flats. The existing building frontage is to be retained with a zine-clad extension above and behind.

The building is located to the rear of the Arches leisure centre when viewed from Trafalgar Road. The Arches is still empty a couple of years after facilities moved to the Greenwich Centre.

The zinc cladding looks like it was changed from a lighter grey to near-black which is welcome. Lots of new developments and conversions include grey zinc cladding. It usually looks a bit dreary; like a tin shack’s been stuck on top. Black appears a bit less “cheap”. Though they do say they may change the colour and material.

The planning application reference is 17/1377/F
