Plans have been submitted for a 14-storey block of flats in North Woolwich beside Royal Victoria Gardens.
75 flats are planned in the block, which is designed by Greenwich based architects bptw.
It’s the second development proposal in the area in recent times. 163 flats are planned a few metres west. That proposal was covered here.
For many years development was minimal in the area. I wrote about the huge amount of planned projects along the DLR line from Canning Town to Woolwich back in May 2017, and at that time no blocks had been submitted.
King George V DLR station in North Woolwich was the only station area along the route not to have housing schemes. That’s now changed.
And more plans will continue to roll in given the masterplan for the area.
Much of the old industrial areas will become housing.
The planning reference is 17/04003/FUL
