RIBA Launches Abbey Wood Housing Competition

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has launched a competition to select an architect to design a high-density residential development on a prominent site opposite the Abbey Wood Crossrail station and close to Thamesmead within the London Borough of Bexley.

This is a part of London due to undergo dramatic change with over £1 billion being invested in Thamesmead over the next ten years, making it not only the biggest regeneration projects in London but one of the biggest in the UK.

The proposed Felixstowe Road site will be one of BexleyCo’s first developments, having been established in 2017 as a vehicle for securing much-needed quality housing within the London Borough of Bexley. The site lies adjacent to the elevated Harrow Manorway flyover and is located within the Abbey Wood and South Thamesmead Housing Zone, which will see radical change including the delivery of new homes over the next 10 years by Peabody.

The deadline for registrations is April 16, 2018.
