Plans have been submitted to demolish low-rise commercial units including a former William Hill and build 63 student rooms a couple of door down from Venue in New Cross.
The current low rise buildings break up building lines. This offers a decent transition between existing buildings.
Overall it seems a decent use of land. Most students won’t mind living near a club, and well if they do, don’t move there. Students living for a year as freshers is a lot more suitable than people in full time employment, and the more student accommodation is built the fewer family homes become HMOs for students.
