Rolfe Judd has prepared a master plan study for a 20 acre complex industrial site in south London. The proposal will take advantage of the existing strong sense of place that exists within New Cross Gate through the traces of the area’s history.
Our vision for the re-development of the site is to create a new high-density mixed-use development, which seeks to reinterpret history, using the analogy of industrial type railway buildings and railway tracks to inform the design and layout of the new buildings and associated public realm.
New green spaces and retail frontages will blend with the local vernacular. A new Sainsbury’s superstore is a key component of the redevelopment of the site, with residential units located around and above it. The proposal seeks to establish 1,160 residential units located within a series of buildings between 5 and 25 storeys, together with 213,100 sqft approx. of commercial, retail space and community uses.
At its heart will be newly landscaped public realm, providing high quality external amenity space for residents and visitors and create an attractive setting that roots the development within its context. The creation of a pedestrian and cycle route from east to west will help to open up the site, in line with the Council’s aspiration for this part of Lewisham.
