Farrell to review Aedas’ contentious Convoys Wharf masterplan
Terry Farrell and Partners has been appointed to review Aedas’ 18.6 hectare masterplan for the redevelopment of historic Convoys Wharf in Deptford, south east London
The £1 billion project could now be redrawn with Farrells tasked with listening ‘to the community’ and gaining ‘a full understanding of their perspectives.’
Aedas’ scheme featured 3,500 homes and three towers rising to 40 storeys.
A Hutchison Whampoa spokesperson said: ‘We are really excited by the opportunities that this project brings and it is certainly been difficult to see our investment delayed for so long.
‘However, we are willing to stop, reflect and listen to different opinions and we are hopeful that this consultation event will help to clear a way forward. We’re delighted that Sir Terry has agreed to help us at this time and build on the valuable work that has been done over the last three years.’
The site was Henry VIII’s royal dockyard in the sixteenth century and features a Grade II-listed wharehouse. The previous owner, News International hoped to redevelop the site with a Richard Rogers Partnership scheme.
A community consultation event will take place on Saturday 24 March.
