A project tucked away on the Arsenal site in Woolwich is seeing the conversion of a listed building into 112 homes and shops before completion in spring 2022.
The Royal Carriage Factory – or Building 10 – sits between existing buildings and was controversial given the impact on light levels to numerous homes.
