Plans for a major development on the Old Kent Road at the former gasholder site are now online.
The proposal from Avonton mentions 650-700 homes alongside a possible lido.
It’s the latest gasholder site to see substantial plans with another in Belvedere set to see hundreds of homes.
Owner SGN demolished a gasholder in Greenwich despite opposition, but will retain one here given its Grade II listed status.
A new park will be constructed around the gasholder with towers planned alongside.
It’s the latest in a long line of proposals along the Old Kent Road. In recent months some sites have seen work speed up, with work now underway at the former Aldi supermarket site.
168 homes will be built above a new Aldi supermarket.
A KFC was further west was recently demolished after plans for a student block approved.
Demolition is also ongoing at the adjacent site named Ruby Triangle. Around 1,150 homes are planned.
Southwark Council also plan to demolish the Ledbury estate and replace with 340 homes. That was approved in June 2022.
The elephant in the room is transport and the stalled proposal to construct a Bakerloo line extension along the Old Kent Road to serve thousands of homes.
That proposal was due to terminate at Lewisham, at least initially. Another area seeing substantial housing growth.
