Build to rent, Greenwich, London
Legal & General has appointed Fathom Architects in collaboration with DLA Architects to develop designs for its largest build-to-rent site, opposite the new Crossrail station in Woolwich. Our remit is to develop a residential concept aimed at increasing housing density to meet growing demand, with a focus on urban design, massing and façade development. Fathom has presented designs for the site to the GLA, CABE and the Royal Borough of Greenwich, ahead of a submission to planning in summer 2019.
The scheme is projected to deliver over 650 much needed new homes, together with 21,000 sq ft of commercial space and a new public square. Housing will comprise both private and affordable rental homes, split between those at London Living Rent and discount market rent.
