Woolwich’s Riverside House sees plan for 200 flats

Developers have submitted plans to convert Riverside House in Woolwich from office to residential use. 199 flats are included.

The building has long been a candidate for conversion. Under permitted development rights introduced in recent years, developers do not need to include affordable housing nor pay any Section 106 or Community Infrastructure Levy when converting offices to homes.

Minimum room and flat size regulation also do not apply.

The building was used for Greenwich Council and HMRC offices. Greenwich Council recently sold the building.


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.

Thank you
