Plans for housing on Thamesmead site beside 1750-home plot
Developer Modomo are looking are building on a site in Thamesmead and seek to build:
- 95 units of co-living bedrooms and communal spaces (up to 6 storeys)
- 10 live-work units on the ground floor level;
- A community hub
- Circa 950m2 providing onsite accommodation (for the adjacent Plumstead -West Thamesmead development)
The Modomo website states they focus on short term living: “Modomo makes use of these sites on a temporary or meanwhile basis, quickly delivering bespoke modular constructed homes for an agreed period of time. Then we take them away for re-use elsewhere.”
The site lies adjacent to plans for 1,750 homes approved last year; a joint venture between Berkeley Homes and Peabody.
I covered the plan last December and highlighted a lack of public realm and access to public transport in funding agreements between Greenwich Council and developers. TfL and the NHS were also critical of allocated funding levels.
