Greenwich development with replacement post office plus housing now rising

Construction work on a replacement post office in Greenwich town centre has now commenced.

The site will see the former building replaced with a new structure including housing above three shop units.

New Post Office in Greenwich

The former Post Office was a pretty low quality piece of post-war in-fill and won’t be lamented by most for its architectural qualities.

Original plans saw a temporary post office located in the nearby car park outside shops where Sainsbury’s and Aldi are located, to name but two. That plan was eventually ditched.

Though one element that was good about the old site wasn’t the building but the generous amount of paving space outside allowing a handy place to overtake dawdling tourists.

That will be no more with the building’s footprint extending out onto what was formerly pedestrian space.

Flush with neighbouring buildings

Plans for the site first emerged in 2021 and covered on this site back then.

As well as the units at ground floor level, nine new homes are located above.

As well as a post office a replacement pharmacy is expected.

The site sits close to the former Greenwich town hall, where plans to convert into residential use were recently approved.

Adverts are far from enough to cover site costs and my rent.
