Lewisham shopping centre plan for 1,700 new homes: New events soon

Two events are to held this month revealing further details on a major redevelopment plan at Lewisham shopping centre.

Earlier this year a preliminary planning document was submitted stating the site could see up to “up to 1,700 residential dwellings, 475 shared living homes and 700 student homes” could be built on site around a new shopping centre.

Landsec U&I are behind the proposal which would see the 1970s shopping centre and car park demolished.

The existing tower formerly home to Citibank could now be extended with further details set to be shown.

Two events will be held within the shopping centre at unit 25 opposite TK Maxx on:

Saturday 11 May 10am-5pm

Sunday 12 May 11am-4pm

Plans will see a new square opposite Lewisham Gateway’s last phase which is now heading towards completion.

That entails the demolition not only of the shopping centre but other town centre buildings.

At the other end of town, redevelopment plans also includes the demolition of the existing Wetherspoon pub.

Further details can be seen at forthcoming events; It’s likely a planning application will be submitted later this year.
