Meyer Homes has submitted plans for 367 flats in Lewisham, replacing the surface car parks of the Tesco supermarket. These will be contained within three buildings, the tallest of which will be 34 storeys.
Two shorter buildings of 14 and 8 storeys will also be built on the main car park site, while the tallest tower will be on the overflow car parking site nearest the station.
The main supermarket isn’t part of the current redevelopment plans. As the supermarket contains a basement car park, the residential scheme does not need to provide a replacement car park for the store. A small amount of extra commercial space will be provided in the base of the new scheme.
The main tower has a 3 storey grid design, with bronze feature panels and full height windows. The shorter buildings use a palette of bricks, as is common in New London Vernacular style.
The tower joins other recently constructed, under construction and planned towers for the Lewisham town centre area. Consultation is currently taking place on extending the Bakerloo line to the area which should help ease some of the transport issues created by new development.
