Berkeley Homes has lodged plans for 1050 homes on the Malt Street site just off the Old Kent Road. The scheme includes multiple towers on industrial land to the South of the Asda supermarket, as well as a new linear park through the middle of the site.
The scheme has been submitted as a hybrid planning application, with the majority of the planned apartments submitted in outline, meaning further applications will be required detailing their appearance. A total of 691 flats have been submitted in outline, with a further 359 submitted with detailed designs.
Included in the detailed plans is a 40 storey tower with 248 flats. Alongside this are two smaller buildings. These form the central part of the site. A small amount of non-residential floorspace for a mix of uses including retail, office or community uses is planned, as well as a new energy centre.
The designs have been drawn up by Rolfe Judd Architects, and will form one part of a wider redevelopment of the Old Kent Road. Regeneration plans here have been boosted by TfL’s consultation on an extension of the Bakerloo Line to Lewisham with two stops planning on the road.
