Planning submitted for new homes in Bexley
Planning has been submitted for a new mixed-tenure housing development in Abbey Wood for Peabody. The building incorporates 66 new homes and commercial units terminating the existing high street on the ground floor.
The development steps in height from two to ten storeys to negotiate between the modest scale of Abbey Wood Village and the surrounding hills in which the ruins of the historic abbey are located. Rooftop terraces provide amenity space for residents with spectacular panoramic views northwards towards the River Thames and incorporate planting that echoes the adjacent wood.
The brickwork incorporates rustication and variation in mortar colour resulting in a stratified appearance inspired by the geology of the site.
