Curzon plan picked for Ladywell Playtower

The Curzon proposal
The Mayor of Lewisham has selected Curzon cinemas as the Council's preferred bidder for the redevelopment of Ladywell Playtower.

Of the four proposals shortlisted to restore the derelict building, the Curzon plan was ranked joint-first  by Council officers alongside a rival cinema scheme from Picturehouse, and came second to the Picturehouse plan in the public consultation. A petition against Picturehouse gained momentum in recent days, due to the pay and conditions offered to the parent group's workers.
The Curzon scheme was produced in partnership with developers Guildmore and will include "a mix of residential, nursery and supported living uses across the remainder of the site."

The result is a fantastic turnaround in the fortunes of the building - which once looked doomed - and great news for Ladywell as a destination.
