A quick update now as many people seem to be interested in the ever changing face of Lewisham and my last post only featured photos by night.
Today you can have a gander at a smattering of pics by day taken passing through.
The last residential part of Lewisham Gateway phase two to see cladding applied is this block lining the street beside busy stops.
Commercial units will face the street upon completion. Get Living don’t appear to have updated the forthcoming shop and restaurant list. The future of a cinema unit being built remains up in the air.
The tower located close to the former Citibank tower is all but complete with floor-to-ceiling glazing on a podium which should make it an interesting spot to look out and people watch.
Lewisham’s Citibank tower has for some reason seen all lights on at times recently.
Many plans have been and gone since the bank vacated while more concrete appears to fall off the façade.
Whenever covering Lewisham the issue of roads and narrow pavements arises. This shot shows work on public space which leads to a pedestrian only route through the site set to be lined with shops and commercial space.
As stated above this is just a brief update so a quick few images of a couple of sites.
Meyer Homes’ tower near Tesco still isn’t complete with progress looking limited in recent weeks –
In total that site – approved on appeal – will see 365 homes.
Last but not least here’s an image taken from the train of a major Lewisham estate rebuild. This has seen two adjacent sites at Lethbridge and Heathside demolished.
The final phase is now almost complete.
When complete the site will total 1,225 homes across six phases.
Many of these sites are as good as complete so it’s a matter of months rather than years until occupied.
