Deptford office block to be turned into flats under new plan

Plans are in to convert a recently built office block on Arklow Road into flats.

The block is alongside a residential block in the same development. The idea is to convert into 25 flats.

15 flats were previously approved in another conversion plan. Despite these plans a number of businesses operate at the site.




Astra House is located at 25-27 Arklow Road, which has seen a large number of new homes built in recent years. A tower is currently under construction nearby as part of the 336 home Anthology development.

Another plan sees a Victorian building converted to housing, which I covered in June.

Lewisham Council also plans to construct 31 flats down the road in a temporary building along the lines of a block in Ladywell.

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.
