Pair of schemes will rise to 13 storeys
Plans by PRP for a 766-home scheme in Woolwich, south-east London, have been granted planning approval by Greenwich council.
Lovell will build two new developments, Trinity Park and Trinity Rise, to replace the former Morris Walk North and South estates.
The apartment blocks will be up to 13 storeys in height and fitted with PV panels and provide a mix of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes. A total of 177 of the homes will be for affordable rent and 76 for shared ownership.
The plans are part of Greenwich council’s £398m One Woolwich programme which has seen Lovell build 750 homes in the programme’s first phase, at Trinity Walk in the centre of Woolwich.
In total, the redevelopment plan will deliver 1,615 new homes over a 13-year regeneration programme.
Richard Harvey, partner at PRP, said they would create two ”diverse and contextually integrated neighbourhoods that are rich in character and in high-quality amenities”.
He added: ”We are excited to have already started the technical design and are committed to the delivery and success of the fantastic new homes and of the wider regeneration.”
Demolition work on the Morris Walk north and south started in July 2020, with construction on the main build set to commence in early 2022.
