Residential development opportunity in Abbey Wood, South East London

About this property

  • The broadly rectangular site extends to 0.27 acres (0.109 hectares). The property was originally constructed in circa 1970 as a main post office and sorting depot, with a brick cladding and frame structure. The site is on a gradient and the Post Office was located at ground floor level beneath the Sorting Office. The Sorting Office occupied both part ground and first floor level across the site. The building has been vacant since January 2019 when the post office vacated the premises. The surrounding area although predominantly residential is adjacent to Abbey Wood local centre which offers a parade of shops concentrated along Wilton Road, to the north east of the site. To the south of the site is a local vicarage, to the south east is Abbey wood community centre and to the west of the site is Folkrite Congregational Church.

Local information

  • The property is prominently positioned on the corner of Conference Road and Abbey Wood Road, within 100 metres of Abbey Wood Mainline and Crossrail station. The site benefits from excellent transport links to the M25 via the Dartford Link and wider transport network.
  • The site is well served by public transport, with Abbey Wood station providing direct services to London Bridge (29 minutes) and Cannon Street (38 minutes). Journey times to Canary Wharf are approximately 37 minutes, with connections to the DLR network at Woolwich Arsenal.
  • From Autumn 2021 Crossrail services are scheduled to commence which will add up to 12 extra trains an hour. This will cut journey times with trains to Canary Wharf in 11 minutes, Bond Street in 25 minutes and Heathrow Airport in 51 minutes.
  • The London Borough of Bexley and The Royal Borough of Greenwich are working together to regenerate the local area. The plans include regeneration of the high street, a new library, new central square and new business and commercial space. HUB Development are constructing a Build to Rent scheme with additional retail and leisure amenities less than a mile to the north of the site. Further amenities close to the site include Sainsburys and Lidl which are situated to the north of the station.
