Lewisham High Street hotel plans approved

Lewisham will see a new 127-room hotel after plans approved last month.

The building will be located on the former TFC food store at 223-229 Lewisham High Street near Ladywell. A commercial space will be located at street level.

Developer Skillcrown are hoping to attract a brand such as Travelodge or Premier Inn and believe the site will “attract both tourist visitors to Lewisham, as well as providing temporary accommodation for users, workers, and visitors of University Hospital Lewisham.”

Commercial space

An earlier plan was rejected on appeal before this revised scheme saw the green light.

The London Plan seeks 40,000 additional hotel bedrooms across London by 2036.

    It will be good to see this site come back in to use. The hotel will be an addition to Lewisham High Street and provide hotel bedrooms for London and as stated for visitors and employees at University Lewisham Hospital.

    I would also like to see another retailer (Supermarket) taking over the site of the old Tesco Store which will be nearby to the new hotel on Lewisham HIgh Street. As this is a modern purpose built store and part of a residential/retail development.
