A public exhibition showing the University of Greenwich's plans for the run down site in Stockwell Street begins today.
The exhibitions opens to the public today at 5pm at Queen Mary Court and will be open every day up until the 9th July.
The University proposes replacing the existing 60s office building, John Humpreys House, with a brand new library and School of Architecture, which would be moved from its current site in Avery Hill.
The redevelopment would open up a new public walkway between Stockwell Street and King William Walk and include a gallery and cafe for the community at ground level.
The University is keen to receive feedback on the proposals so visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to submit their own thoughts and ideas using either paper-based forms or computer terminals which have been set up in the exhibition room. For details on the exhibition's opening hours, visit the dedicated website.

Nick Raynsford MP has told Greenwich.co.uk that he believes the proposed new development is "a good scheme" that is "high quality" in terms of architecture.
He does, however, think that the designers "need to have a further look at making a decent public space" at the main entrance as he thinks the proposed approach and entrance looks "rather mean and disappointing".
I asked Mr Raysnford if a larger public space should incorporate a resurrected Village Market as some critics have asked for, but he said that as Greenwich was already served by the covered market and Clocktower Market, he was "not convinced that there needs to be an additional market" at the Stockwell Street site.
The following official artwork from the proposals has been supplied by the University of Greenwich.
