Moving mountains

We didn’t quite move mountains, but we did move two rivers and a roundabout.

Where most people saw a congested roundabout, we saw an opportunity – a new heart for the town centre, a place to stay and play in Lewisham.

It’s all in the mix

Lewisham Gateway provides over 1,000 new homes including co-living opportunities, with open public space, shops, restaurants, a gym, workspace and the borough’s first major multiplex cinema.

A brighter future for Lewisham

At Muse, we aim to make places that are people-centred, high quality and built to last. As well as creating a new community of residents within Lewisham Gateway itself, we have provided safe pedestrian links from the town centre through to the main transport hub, giving it a long-term sustainable future and contributing positively to the wider regeneration of the area.

A place for people

What was once a congested eyesore, is now an inviting urban hub – a place that positively contributes to Lewisham’s bright future.

The power of partnership

Major area-wide regeneration like this is not something that can be achieved alone. It takes cooperation and the ideas and abilities of many different parties.

We’ve worked closely with the London Borough of Lewisham, Homes England, the Mayor of London, Transport for London, the local community, Get Living, and Balfour Beatty our construction partner amongst many others to make our vision at Lewisham a reality.
