Additional shopping space at Royal Arsenal

Earlier in January, a decision was made that would allow more shops to come to the famous Royal Arsenal site in Woolwich. The developer, Berkley, got permission to develop shops and more than 100 flats in 2017. These will be in the historic Building 10. However, there were questions about the additional commercial space. Now, the developer shall have shops on 3,215sqm worth of space. Originally, it was 1,747sqm.

Councillors meant to decide everything in December. However there were concerns that they’d lose a crane girder during development. As a result, there was a delay in the project. The crane comes from the post-war period, somewhere around the 1960s.

The council knows of the crane girder’s significance

Greenwich Council officers are keen on bringing this space back into use. They say there are plenty of advantages to doing so. They’re also well aware of how important the crane girder is. Keeping it means there is an extra symbol of Building 10’s past life. It provides quality, meaning, and local distinctiveness to the interior. In addition, it gives context to the gantry.

In the end, the project got unanimous approval. Of course, the one condition is that the crane girder must remain.

Berkley’s plan comes as Greenwich Council pursues another development. They want to refurbish the Woolwich Creative District. This will see some of the Arsenal’s listed buildings revamped into a cultural quarter. It’ll contain rehearsal space, studios, and also venues.
