Early plans for new homes directly beside the southern portal of Silvertown tunnel have emerged in an application submitted to Greenwich Council.
A document reveals TfL are looking at 300 homes with 1,057 habitable rooms:
“The subject site for this CAAD application, land off Millennium Way in North Greenwich, is an area of land which has been acquired by Transport for London (TfL) for the purposes of the Silvertown Tunnel transport scheme”.
Of three blocks, A and B are located closet to the A102 road and tunnel approach. The aim is 50 per cent “affordable” housing.
The application is specifically for a “Certificate of Appropriate Alternative Development ” for the site which housed one of two gasholders before demolition in the 1980s.
It is not on site of a second gasholder removed in recent years.
It would comprise buildings between 38m and 62m in height, up to 2,268sqm of flexible commercial floorspace and 2,300sqm of children’s play space.
Consultation and further details can be expected on the exact form and appearance a development will take.
