In recent months Sam Manners House in Greenwich has been demolished – and a local resident was there to take pics.
The building provided sheltered housing before coming down. Flats stopped being let in 2017, and an application went in to demolish in October 2019.
I’m told the site has now been levelled. As yet there is no application for new homes to replace the former 1970s block.
As of March 2020 early plans potentially see eight houses and 27 flats built on site. Residents feared the site may become vacant for some time as has been seen at east Greenwich library and the Arches leisure centre.
With so much turmoil what happens next is unknown. Greenwich Council were hoping to complete new homes in 2021.
