Essential Living’s 249-flat tower on the banks of Deptford Creek in Greenwich has begun to be revealed as scaffolding and sheeting are removed.
The tower will be PRS (Private Rented Sector) housing.
The green colour scheme seen in renders isn’t that obvious – at least from where I took photos.
A view over from Island Gardens:
The tower is the tallest currently beside the Creek, though that record wont last for long. A taller 30-storey tower has been submitted for planning at an adjacent site.
Plans went in last month and I covered proposals here.
There are 393 flats planned in towers reaching 26 and 30 floors. These towers would be in Lewisham borough tower whilst Essential Livings are in Greenwich borough.
Another 16 floor block is planned over the Creek at Saxon’s Wharf. That was submitted to Greenwich council in May this year and covered here.
