Martin's Yard, the Brockley Cross regeneration scheme from MacDonald Egan, gets underway this month. Formerly a scaffolding yard, it will be turned in to a mixed-use development, providing new homes and studio spaces and creating a new street in the middle of Brockley.
The Council approved the plans submitted last December without modification and the builders will begin to occupy the site at the end of this month.
Builders Oakwood are working to a 14-month schedule and the project will result in approximately 30,000 square feet of commercial and 30,000 square feet of residential space (47 apartments) being created.
This promises to be one of the most important developments in the area, at last creating significant amounts of live / work space in Brockley for self-employed people and small business owners.
