It will be built in the middle of Woolwich at a plot next to General Gordon Square. Architect on the scheme is Faulkner Browns while Hadron Consulting is project manager.

Morgan Sindall, which last month upgraded its profit forecast for 2021, with analysts now expecting it to make more than £100m pre-tax profit for the first time in its history, is working on another leisure scheme across London called the Britannia Leisure Centre in Hackney in a deal worth £54m.

The wider redevelopment includes 450 new homes along with shops, workspace, food and drink outlets and public areas.
