Tower on Victorian building coming to Deptford
A consultation is to be held on a new block to be built on top of a Victorian building in Deptford.
Buxton group are looking to “death mask” the existing building – Scott House on Grove Street – a controversial practice where the building is gutted with only the shell remaining and a new build built behind and above.
The site is beside tall buildings both existing at the Pepys estate and forthcoming at the Timber Yard development. Lewisham council used compulsory purchase powers to help push the 1,132 home Timber Yard scheme forward.
An exhibition of the Grove Street plans will be open to the general public from 5-8pm on January 31st at 2000 Community Action Centre, 199-201 Grove St, London, SE8 3PG
