An Environmental Impact Assessment Scoping application has been submitted for Cross Quarter in Abbey Wood, containing 250 homes, a 90 room hotel and 800sqm floor space in buildings that include a 29 storey tower.
The application has been submitted by the HUB Group, who are utilising the services of Barton Willmore for the scoping application. Back in May 2016 a similar scoping application was submitted for the same number of units and hotel rooms, however a new application has now been drawn up due to changes – including increasing the commercial floorspace, decreasing the hotel floorspace while keeping room numbers the same, and an increase in height of the tower from 27 to 29 storeys.
The scheme is located between Felixstowe Road and the new Sainsbury’s, which are just north of Abbey Wood station which will be on Crossrail. The site is immediately to the West of the recently built 10 storey gold and black apartment building.
