A 17 storey block on Norman Road in Greenwich has been approved by Greenwich Council.
The site is currently a skip storage depot facing onto Deptford Creek. 145 homes will be built.
It’s a chunky old block lacking much in the way of grace or elegance in design.
One positive aspect is a Creek side path – though other sections are still closed off to the public years after they were due to open.
A small amount of public space is located at the junction with Tarves Way:
£145,000 of Section 106 income will go towards GLLaB. Very little will go to the local community, wider public realm improvements including at run down estates on Norman Road nor health or education.
