Art studios coming to Iceland building in Greenwich
Plans for artists studies above Iceland on Trafalgar Road in Greenwich have been approved.
Arbeit studios are behind the plan. The operate a number of sites across London. They will be sub-leasing part of the building from Iceland and look to install space for 20 artists.
One issue with the site is deliveries and potential disruption along Trafalgar Road. An initial application was refused partly for that reason. They expect up to six deliverers a day though drivers should use Colomb Street.
How long it remains as studios remains to be seen. The building has always struck me as one likely to be redeveloped with new flats above a retail unit.
