The Site

Deptford, and Creekside is becoming an emerging creative hub in London and the changing character of the area is evident by developments further along Creekside and adjacent to our site at 1 Creekside. The Council has identified that they are keen for Creekside to be redevelopment in a masterplanned approach, and for individual sites to respond to the emerging Deptford Creative Quarter. The proposals at 1 Creekside have started this process and we are looking to build upon the changing character of Creekside.

2 Creekside is currently home to the Bird’s Nest Pub, and it has been an important part of Deptford’s vibrant character and heritage. The pub has been a hub for music and art but has fallen on hard times and has been through a number of recent ownership changes. Due to the pub’s current condition, size, offering and context, this has resulted in a decrease in trade and it has been difficult to attract and maintain new and existing customers.

We believe that our proposals for a mixed-use development will re-instate the pub as a focal point in the emerging local creative community.

Our Vision

Improving the existing pub to provide a better spaces for customers

Creating high quality commercial space for existing and new creative businesses

Delivering 31 new homes on-site with additional cycle storage

Retaining the existing pub frontage to respect the local Conservation area
