A tower seems a brave move in the area, but in the context of the coloured blocks that make up the interesting, if isolated, One SE8 development, not as out of place at it might have been once. No doubt there will be the normal clashes between disgruntled locals and incoming yuppies, but soon Deptford will become the new Southwark and will be full of trendy restaurants and a branch of Starbucks. We’ve got them in Greenwich and Blackheath already, and you know how they spread…
The design of this tower comes courtesy of John MacAslan & Partners, and you can find out more at the firm’s website. The developer is Brookmill Estates.
