Larger phase at Lewisham site due to start next spring

Multiplex and Balfour Beatty will find out later this summer who has won the deal to build the second phase of the £375m Lewisham Gateway scheme in south-east London.

Developer Muse has said work on this larger phase will start in the first quarter of next year.

The second phase will see a block comprising elements of three, 10 and 12 storeys, one of four storeys, another featuring 16 to 19 storeys and a fourth comprising 30 storeys. Planning was given by the local council late last year.

The construction value of the second phase is understood to be around £200m.

Designed by PRP, the architect behind the first phase, the blocks will deliver 530 residential units. The second phase also includes retail and a hotel.

The first phase saw just under 200 flats built over two buildings at 25 and 15 storeys high. This work was carried out by John Sisk.
