Lewisham Council - The Deptford Project

The Deptford Project

The restoration of an historic Victorian carriage ramp and the creation of a new public square are two of the key elements of The Deptford Project (a.k.a. Deptford Rise) which received planning permission in early 2012.

The scheme occupies much of the area in between Deptford station, Octavius Street and the back of the Albany Theatre and includes:

  • The renovation and extension of the Grade II listed carriage ramp, the oldest surviving railway structure of its kind in London, plus 14 railway arches beneath to provide a mix of commercial spaces
  • An eight-storey building, located alongside the carriage ramp containing 121 apartments and seven commercial units
  • The refurbishment of the existing St Paul’s House to provide affordable apartments and town houses and two ground floor restaurants
  • The creation of a new public piazza and market space, adjacent to the new Deptford Station courtyard.

Construction of the scheme is now underway, with developer Cathedral having completed all piling activity.
