Plans for a £25 million 11-storey development in New Cross will be submitted this month.  

Developer Southern Grove has published a CGI of its plans for 39 flats, which it says will be 100 per cent affordable if approved.  

The scheme, called Eckington Yard, is proposed for the site at 52 to 54 New Cross Road, currently home to a former branch of Plumbase and between a church and three storey-apartment building.

The homes would be available at London Affordable Rent and shared ownership, though the exact division has yet to be released.   

The scheme will be made up of 18 one-bed, 17 two-bed and four three-bed apartments, split into three sections of varying heights, ranging from five to 11 storeys.  

Every unit will be dual aspect if the plans get the green light.

Southern Grove CEO Tom Slingsby said: “The striking design of this scheme means it will be one of the leading architectural lights of a wider regeneration that is going to grip this area of London over the next few years.  

“Families and workers on lower incomes all over the capital are desperately in need of more high-quality affordable housing and these homes will help more of them remain where they want to be, in the heart of London.  

“As a fully affordable project targeting key workers, Eckington Yard is going to set a high bar for other developers to follow.  

“The lack of affordable homes in London represents a clear danger to the capital’s ability to house, in an inclusive way, huge sections of the workforce who have a hand in its success and resilience.”
