Student accommodation plan for Mercy Terrace

10-14 Mercy Terrace (a light industrial unit tucked under the bridge in Ladywell), is to be redeveloped and the architects commissioned to design its replacement are inviting people's views on their proposals. Ladywell Village Improvement Group reports:

Goldcrest Architects proposals includes flexible office space for small and medium businesses on the ground floor with high quality student accommodation above, contributing to a wider mix of accommodation that is compatible with and will support local businesses in the existing shopping parade. The drop in session will be held on Wednesday 23rd July from 2pm to 8pm at the St. Mary’s Centre, Ladywell Road, SE13 7UW.

it's not really 'tucked under the bridge', that is where the Ladywell trolls (val) reside, the proposed site is beside the bridge.

They could have converted the old Art Deco building for this....anyway seems like an okay idea...students could help the Ladywell shops survive.

Where do Ladywell Trolls operate? Must say I used to enjoy a bit of that sort of thing The standard of trolling on this site is bog. 'Terencetrentderby' being the sole survivor, like someone who's got the job, not from insight or ability, but because he's still around.

The Art Deco building wasn't; I know. I was very surprised. It apparently was a difficult shape for conversion.

I just think is a shame - 'Sign you name across my heart' was a fantastic tune and it all just seems to have gone downhill from there. Interesting article on his journey but no mention of his current role on Brockley Central: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/culture/2013/06/where-have-you-gone-terence-trent-darby.html

Went along today and the were quite nice seemed to be willing to take alot on board. If they don't use render on the building and go for the more broken up building option I think will be good. Students can support more of a nightlife in ladywell.

Hi Mike. Goldcrest's link doesn't seem to work for me. Is this the same Goldcrest who had a unique approach to brownfield land acquisition 'find us some and we'll make you a partner' as advertised on hoardings on Creek Road before.... nothing happened, on his triangle of land and the hoardings were taken down?
