Groundwork is now well underway on what will be Lewisham’s tallest tower when complete.
The 35-floor block is to be located near Lewisham station and contains provision for a new station entrance, both to future Bakerloo Line platforms as well as Southeastern services.
It will contain 758 student flats in the main block. Another block of 20-floors will include 40 social-rented flats and 27 for shared-ownership.
The above overview shows a 34-storey tower in Tesco’s car park. That was recently approved on appeal.
The block is a few months behind schedule but once rising should rapidly become a feature. It uses modular construction which developers claim will see completion far quicker than through the use of traditional methods.
