A planning application for a large development of new apartments, hotels and student accommodation at the corner of Greenwich High Road and Norman Road has been submitted.
Proposals for the mixed use development, named The Movement, include 181 residential apartments, 358 student accommodation units, a 104 bedroom three star hotel and a 30 bedroom boutique hotel.
The site of the proposed development is the Greenwich Industrial Estate which fronts onto Norman Road and is adjacent to the North Pole pub.
The plans also include space for shops, a health club, a nursery, cafe and office space with a dedicated business start up area.
The number of student accommodation units and residential apartments is less than was first suggested in the scoping report for this development that Greenwich.co.uk first reported on back in August 2010.
The developer behind the proposal is Cathedral Group – the same developer that redeveloped Devonport House into a hotel and student accommodation and is working on the large “Deptford Project” regeneration.
