Proposal for 231 student rooms at Art Hub in Deptford Creekside

An application to build a block containing 231 student rooms has been submitted.

It’s the latest proposal for Creekside and follows an application for a neighbouring site made in March 2023.

Design revisions

This site at 5-9 Creekside is occupied by a wholesalers and Art Hub, with the application including commercial areas across three levels and a “co-working cafe”.

Site at present

Over the road is The Bird’s Nest pub which saw plans to extend and rebuild much of the site made in May 2022.

There’s also a residential block at No 1 Creekside which is now all but complete.

This video taken from the DLR on a trip between Greenwich and Deptford Bridge stations shows areas set for development.

The exact site of proposed 231 student rooms is seen at around the 26 second mark.

There’s a handy image within the application highlighting some sites, but other future developments in the area are absent such as Sun Wharf plans.

Running a site takes much time and cost a lot of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my rent.

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.
