An event this afternoon (Wednesday 6th December) will again have models of how Lewisham shopping centre will look after demolition and rebuilding.
A unit within the centre at number 25 beside XO Bikes will open between 3pm and 6:30pm.
The models show plans for a new shopping centre, green space above and new buildings around the area.
Towers will be built alongside the retained Citibank block while the existing Wetherspoons will be demolished as covered on this site.
The unit will be open each Wednesday in the run up to Christmas. It’s very unlikely I can make it to view them due to work and looking after my little one, so if anyone does go and takes photos feel free to send them over.
Developer Landsec plan at least 1,800 homes with more possible as revealed in their annual financial results recently released.
Links to other developments
An area will be opened up across the road from Lewisham Gateway’s next phase now set to open in 2024 bringing shops and a potential cinema.
That’s hit a spot of bother with the proposed cinema operator entering administration while the cladding contractor walked off the job.
When it does open, a pedestrian-only route through the site will lead to the DLR and rail station.
That in turn brings us to other developments such as the tower now almost complete and plans to demolish the Tesco in years to come.
