The London Borough of Lewisham (LBL) is inviting proposals for the meanwhile use of three properties in Catford. The spaces are located within Catford town centre and offer wide possibilities for diverse, creative, commercial, residential and mixed-used occupation.
LBL hope the developments will inject a new burst of life and creativity into some of Catford’s derelict and unused spaces, helping to bring new talent, opportunities and resources to the local area.
Developments will help to catalyse the re-invigoration of Catford town centre, and meet Lewisham Council priorities for local regeneration, growth and investment.
The three spaces are:
Thomas Lane Depot, Catford, SE6 4RZ
Thomas Lane Depot is a large warehouse space originally used as a storage site for local tradesmen and market sellers. It is located at: Thomas Lane Depot, Thomas Lane, Catford, SE6 4RZ, behind the Catford Constitutional Club (Catford Broadway, SE6 4SP).
The building has been vacant for the last 10 years and is in a state of dilapidation. There is a large amount of overgrown foliage occupying the site and intruding inside the building, whilst the corrugated roof is in need of complete replacement. De-risking and part demolition works are required to take the space back to a safe and usable shell condition. The Council is prepared to consider undertaking an amount of building work to facilitate the buildings occupation and temporary re-use.
17-18 Catford Broadway, SE6 4SN
The properties at 17-18 Catford Broadway, SE6 4SN, offer both ground floor commercial space and upper residential flats. Property 17 has an approximate ground floor area of 66m2 and a 3-4 bedroom flat above, whilst 18 has an approximate ground floor area of 94m2 and a 2 bedroom flat above.
The properties have recently been acquired from private owners and are in a poor condition. Both need work to improve their structural integrity and have suffered from water ingress and poor upkeep. Costs to bring both properties back into a habitable and structurally sound, weatherproof state are estimated at to be £200,000+.
The Brookdale Club, Brookdale Road, Catford, SE6 4JY
The Brookdale Club is located at: Brookdale Road, Catford, SE6 4JY, just off of Catford Broadway next to The Catford Centre. The building has been in the recent possession of a working men’s club but the Council gained vacant possession on the end of December. The property is in a much better condition than the two described above and is fully habitable in its current condition. It does however require some improvement work, mainly surrounding cosmetic refurbishment. The ground floor commercial space occupies an area of approximately 416m2.
The council has secured the building in the short term, and is in conversation with property guardians to secure and help maintain the buildings condition until a suitable meanwhile use tenant can be identified.
