Further details on 1,700 homes, new shops and park planned at Lewisham shopping centre

Developers behind a major Lewisham town centre development have revealed further images as consultation events are due to be held.

In recent days this site covered plans by Landsec U+I with a press release today giving us further snippets including a new image seen above.


Previously I’d wondered how 2,500 homes in LandSec’s annual financial results matched with the announcement of 1,700 new homes last week.

It appears now the extra residential space will be via shared living and student housing.

They also state that some buildings will be refurbished: “In addition to new infrastructure, the existing high street will get a new lease of life, with historic buildings like Woolworths retained and restored.”

Architects are Studio Egret West who were behind the “award-winning Mayfield Park in Manchester which has received international acclaim since it opened last year.”

High Street gems

While the 1970s shopping centre car park are set to go restoration of fine buildings is a big plus.

The High Street has a number of great buildings along its length and not just around the Riverdale Centre.

Over the road there’s fine buildings such as what is now home to Iceland.

Some are in fine condition. Others less so.

Primark building is a bit of a gem

What we also know is that the street and public space between will see a major revamp as part of a £24 million project, which was covered on this site in recent days.
