Phases 1 and 2 of Woolwich Central, a large supermarket and council offices, are now complete. Formation Architects have been commissioned by Meyer Homes to design the final two phases of the development.

Phases 3 and 4 combined consists of 724 mixed tenure residential units, and commercial area including a co-working office space, along with an affordable workspace and café. The overall scheme aims to provide a sustainable mixed-use quarter, a well-landscaped public realm, improve the active frontages and links with the existing area, and reconnect the Woolwich Common Conservation Area to the riverfront.

Like most major development projects in London, our scheme in Woolwich has been complex and long-running. The team at FA have not only dealt with the complex design work but also steered their way around the many technical and planning obstacles with skill and determination.
