Architecture 519 working for Berkeley Homes (East Thames) Limited have recently had two planning applications approved for the proposed mixed use redevelopment of the former Carriageworks Factory (Building 10) at the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich. The proposals, based on an initial concept design developed by AHMM, provide 3240 sq m of high quality commercial spaces for a mix of uses, 1050 sq m of publically accessible, semi-covered landscaped square and relocates an existing chimney for the adjoining energy centre, all within the footprint of the refurbished Grade II Listed former factory building.
Building 10, which is the last remaining Listed building on the Royal Arsenal site to be redeveloped will form a vital link between the adjacent Cross Rail Station, which is due to open next year, and the wider Arsenal site. The proposed commercial spaces, publically accessible, semi-covered landscaped square and previously consented new build residential units will ensure a vibrant and sustainable environment is created which can be enjoyed by residents and visitors.
The enabling works are planned to commence on site in the near future with a planned opening date of Summer 2021.
