Greenwich community centre set for demolition

The former Triangle community centre in Greenwich is set to be demolished to make way for new homes.

The centre on Commerell Street was closed around a decade ago as cuts hit local authorities. Since then it has been occupied by property guardians. Alongside the centre, garages next door would be demolished for the new homes from architects ShedKM.

Existing building

ShedKM have taken over the design of many plots from Peter Barber. It’s fair to say they havn’t enjoyed the same level of positive reception.

Homes will be modular, with four planned on the site. Click here to view details.


As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

    Yes I guess there are far too many community facilities in RBG Murky. It’s about time some were demolished to build some more flats instead of supporting them, how about another 34 stories of concrete? We don’t need financing to ensure good community facilities and give our people somewhere to go, maybe youth clubs or older adults centres, they’re all a waste of space. As are green areas, they should all be concreted over and maybe flyovers over the top for HGV’s. I think if you suggested this to RBG as a way of reducing local crime they’d probably not vote against, many in their zoom meetings seem too ‘half asleep’ to vote for or against anything. It’ll def pass scrutiny. And then we’ll say why are crime levels on the rise amongst the young?
