Sidcup Marks & Spencer development due to complete in 2024

Work on 59 new homes and a Marks and Spencer Food Hall store in Sidcup are set to open next year.

The building topped out some time ago and a recent passing look reminded me to check what’s happening.

Developer Purelake have begun marketing homes this month and also stated that progress is “giving us confidence that the date of Autumn 2024 for the completion of our 59 one, two and three apartments plus an M&S Foodhall is on target”.

Currently under construction beside Sidcup station

The site formerly saw a large co-op. The M&S will not be as big.

It’s close to the railway station though Southeastern often seem completely unaware new homes are being built near their stations and trying to appeal to new residents.

Perhaps people will use the new Superloop express bus to Abbey Wood for the Elizabeth line in future.

A Waitrose AND a Marks and Spencer in the same town? How fancy!


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.

    • The hoardings still say Autumn 2023… Be a shame if the new store won’t open until a year later than that. Also the planning permission was for larger square footage than the co-op if I recall correctly?
