Greenwich industrial plot for sale: Change of use incoming?

A plot of land in Greenwich on Blackwall lane has been put up for sale.

The area near the A102 flyover is currently industrial though as the advert notes, there could be scope for that to change.

Plans were approved for conversion of an MOT and tyre yard just south of Blackwall Lane into flats:

New build approved on Blackwall Lane

I first covered that proposal in March 2019. It was approved in December of the same year.

Work includes renovating neighbouring Grade II listed Rothbury Hall.

A number of other sites have become residential, with half of Siemans’ land becoming housing.

The changing nature of the area is also embodied by the recently opened Radisson Red hotel.

Located on Tunnel Avenue

Meantime’s brewery sits between the recently approved housing block and the plot of land for sale.

The asking price is £2 million.



Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    • I think housing or a mixed use development consiting of housing and retail/commercial space at ground level would be a good use for this site as amenties in the area are not that great at present considering the amount of new homes that have been built along Blackwall Lane including the nearby Enderby Wharf development.

      The grade II listed Rothbury Hall could posssibly be a Communitry Centre/Nursery for local residents.

    • @ CDT I agree a think a mixed use development would be the best use for this site possibly with a shop at ground level and housing above.

      I also like the idea of Rothbury Hall being a Community Centre, Nursery or GP surgery for local residents on the new developments. As I am not sure how Rothbury Hall could be turned in housing.
