Berkeley Homes have slightly revised plans for towers on the former Waterfront leisure centre car park site in Woolwich. The scheme includes 764 flats.
The changes are pretty minor but the application does offer new images of the scheme, which is now underway with piling ongoing.
Entrances to towers are now more pronounced. Window design on the towers has also been altered. Instead of a tapered form with 45 degree windows angles (seen on left below) they are now 90 degrees (on right):
Since construction on the towers begun visitor numbers to the Waterfront have dropped sharply. A lack of parking is given as one reason.
The towers will top out at 20 floors. This is an earlier render of the scheme:
A water feature and ribbon of green space will stretch from near Woolwich Elizabeth Line station to the Thames.
Despite the prime riverside spot, commercial space for bars, restaurants and community space by the Thames is quite limited which seems odd given the potential.
