A few weeks ago I covered latest work on a tower site beside Lewisham station and speculated whether it would rise given the main target market of students is rather iffy right now. More than 700 rooms are included.
Well work has proceeded and continued once site preparation was complete. The first floors are now emerging above ground.
The block will surprise more than a few people as it rises. It’ll top out above 30 floors and become the tallest in Lewisham. It should also rise extremely quickly given its modular construction.
A new entrance to Southeatern service at Lewisham station is planned alongside any Bakerloo Line extension. There is no confirmation the Southeastern entrance will open given additional staffing cost, and the tube extension looks like its going nowhere any time soon.
