A Woolwich shop will see its shopfront renovated as part of a town centre-wide heritage project.
Cezar on Hare Street will see new signage and awnings attached to the building’s frontage.
Funding comes from the High Street Heritage Action Zone project from Historic England.
The application’s Heritage Statement highlights the building’s history: “The host building is a locally listed symmetrical three-storey late Victorian building in red brick with parapet roof built in 1898 for the Maypole Dairy Company.”
It was a Lunn Poly by the 1960s and stood empty for many years until recently, when new life arrived in Hare Street with a number of long-vacant buildings becoming occupied.
Other nearby structures are seeing renovation including First Choice Cafe near the Waterfront which was built as a Burton’s store.
The Castle Tavern also saw investment in its façade.
Much of Woolwich town centre became a conservation area in 2019 which helped unlock funding for improvement work.
