Meyer Homes has submitted a scoping report for a scheme of around 800 homes on sites either side of the Woolwich Tesco development known as Woolwich Central.
On the site to the North-East of the Tesco, which is currently a temporary park, the proposals include a 30 storey tower and around 200 residential flats, combined with 660sqm retail and 700sqm of commercial floorspace. This is known as Phase 3 of the masterplan, the previous two phases having already been completed.
The site behind the Tesco, fronting the South Circular Road, will see buildings up to 20 storeys and around 600 flats. This will be phase 4, and thus likely will begin construction after the taller tower.
Plans suggest construction will start in mid-2018 and complete in 2022, subject to a planning application – which has yet to be submitted – being approved. The site already benefits from planning for a smaller scheme which includes a tower of similar height.
