A few updates I've covered this week:

16-storey block planned for Bromley High Street submitted. I'm normally all for high density in centres but this site doesn't sit right knowing the area well. Maybe it would if set back from street edge.

https://www.fromthemurkydepths.co.uk...y-town-centre/

Work begins on 35-floor student tower next to Lewisham station. Modular construction that developers state will see it rise rapidly

https://www.fromthemurkydepths.co.uk...student-tower/

And finally a pretty terrible proposal. Flats planned on a park in densely populated area. Maybe permissible if homes were truly affordable, but despite being a bexley council development it includes zero affordable homes as "unviable" - even though public land already. Numerous brownfield land exists nearby too which the authority could have pushed to be resi or mixed-use - but havn't

It's strange proposal. But Bromley is such a mess that it won't really destroy any "feel of the place" as there isn't any.

I wasn't aware it is going to be modular construction. Still, it will take a while to prepare foundations and ground floor before the modules start rising higher up.

The site currently looks like this:

I think Bromley has real potential to go down hill. Itís attraction for now is low density, well to do, greenery making a long and pricey commute acceptable. If they keep building crap there then why live there?

One of Bromley's main attractions is that it's only 15 minutes from central London, with fast services between Bromley South and London Victoria.

Bromley is a major commercial hub, designated in the London Plan as one of 13 metropolitan centres. Multi-storey car parks, 70s office blocks, it's not quite the idyll you envisage:

If you are describing wider Bromley borough, not the Bromley town centre which has a feel of 1970s planning disaster...

SE9 chose probably some better shots of it, you can find much worse angles.

No, I don't. I could swear that I have seen some links somewhere on forum but can't find anything now.

Looks awful! 15 mins from central London is good but it's zone 6 so costs more than somewhere else that close. Lewisham for example is closer, cheaper travel (zone 2), not particularly nice BUT has the potential to move up. So who wants to buy somewhere that will only get worse.

Lewisham is zone 2/3 and Bromley South is zone 5.

As with Lewisham, Bromley town centre has the potential to improve.
