Abbey Place


Abbey Place is a bold set-piece of 13 and 21 storey apartment buildings, in conjunction with the new Abbey Wood Elizabeth Line station, providing over 70% affordable housing.

Abbey Place aims to establish a bold set-piece of high-quality buildings in conjunction with the new Abbey Wood Elizabeth Line station and the regeneration of Thamesmead estate, providing over 70% affordable housing.

The scheme, designed by shedkm for HUB, includes 245 residential apartments across two, 13 and 21 storey towers linked by a shared residents’ podium garden – 173 shared ownership apartments in the east block & 72 private rented apartments in the west block, rooftop amenity amidst the skyframes on each block, 882m2 of flexible commercial space and 2,126m2 public amenity. Homes range from one to three bedrooms and have been designed to maximise the use of space and the site’s east and west locale.

Abbey Place will create a benchmark for the ongoing rejuvenation of an historic residential community and a landmark development representing high standard living. The buildings will create a new sense of place at the heart of Abbey Wood. Using a palette of bold, robust and economic materials, the character of the proposed scheme reinforces the notion of a cluster of new buildings. Working with the constraints of a compact yet well connected site, Abbey Place will become a marker for Abbey Wood as a great place to live, shop, work and relax.

Abbey Place is a great example of a HUB project, located in an affordable regeneration area and close to new transport infrastructure. We attracted funding from the GLA to help unlock the site, by delivering 70% affordable housing, and started on-site during the pandemic. By working with our excellent partners, we have been able to deliver an outstanding scheme, creating a thriving new community and really helping to transform this area.
