An application has been made to convert and extend the Boots’ shop on Trafalgar Road in east Greenwich.
If approved the project from Queensbury Investments Ltd would join its neighbour in seeing a rooftop extension bringing building height sup to neighbouring structures.
Though this plan sees more than just that with the front façade being extensively reworked. The application states “The building’s quality is fairly poor and it lacks a connection with its context and with the streetscape; access at the rear of the building is very restricted while the internal areas of the building are in poor maintenance and suffer from low levels of natural light.”
Co op next door recently saw a rooftop extension as have others along Trafalgar Road in recent years.
By extending and converting part of the first floor, four flats will be created.
All along Trafalgar Road rooftop extensions and reworked fronts can be seen.
Will we one day see one the of town’s biggest units see similar?
The Iceland site looks a prime candidate –
Other areas to see recent extensions sit to the east past this dismal junction.
This newest proposal does rework the ground floor which raises the question of whether Boots will remain on site during work.
The application can be viewed here.
