Lewisham Gateway construction could begin this summer

Revised plans for the major mixed-use housing development 'Lewisham Gateway' have been submitted, with the developers hoping to start working on two tall buildings this summer, if permission is granted.

Towers A1 and A2 are located at the north west corner of the Lewisham Gateway site, nearest Lewisham Station. Developers Taylor Wimpey and Mace submitted the plans in February Lewisham Gateway and aim to "provide a total of 193 residential units (comprising 18 studio units, 97 one-bedroom units, 74 two-bedroom units and 4 three-bedroom units) and 518 sqm (GEA) of retail/restaurant/cafe floorspace (Use Class A1 and/or A3)), as well as open space (including ‘Confluence Place’), public realm and related works.”

The much-delayed project will replace the roundabout near the station and divert vehicles around a new system, which is expected to slow traffic through the centre of Lewisham.

As construction work at Loampit Vale draws to a close, Lewisham Gateway and Thurston Road represent the next phase in the area's development.
