Deptford MOT garage snapped up by Shoreditch developer

Another piece of Deptford Creekside has been targeted for redeveloped.

Crosswhatfields reports that Shoreditch-based Bluecroft (who were behind the conversion of Riverdale House in Lewisham, but hopefully not the marketing) have acquired Number One Creekside, an MOT garage opposite the Bird's Nest pub.

The move follows intensive development on the other side of the creek and approval of plans to redevelop neighbouring Faircharm estate as a mixed use office and residential area.

The plans for this site will take a couple of years to materialise, but the developer's track record suggests the scheme will seek to build on Deptford's emergence as a nascent centre for the "desk-based" creative industries, rather the "blowtorch and canvas" craft sector. In other words, expect a mini-Faircharm of flats and small scale offices.
