Lewisham Gateway has been awarded the best borough-led project title at this year’s Building London Planning Awards.
The awards, created by BusinessLDN, in partnership with the Mayor of London, celebrate outstanding town planning and creative development from across London.
Judges commented that Lewisham Gateway “Removes intimidating gyratory and de-culverts two rivers as a centrepiece to a new park and gateway to the town centre. The development is transformative and will boost the attractiveness of the town centre bringing environmental and economic benefits and affordable housing to assist social wellbeing.”
Once complete in 2023, Lewisham Gateway will provide 1,000 new homes – including affordable homes for local residents – along with bars, shops, restaurants, public spaces and an Empire cinema.
Beyond bricks and mortar benefits, the team is leaving a positive legacy in the area, by working together to provide jobs and training opportunities for the local community.
Michael Orr, development director, said:
We’re creating Lewisham Gateway with Lewisham Council, Get Living and contractor Balfour Beatty, with support from Homes England and Transport for London.
