Renaissance wins Planning Award


Barratt London wins ‘Best Built Project - Community Scale Scheme’ at the London Planning Awards for The Glass Mill Leisure Centre, Lewisham

The Glass Mill Leisure Centre is the civic and public element of Renaissance, a high quality public facility delivered by Barratt London. The centre plays a key part in creating a new neighbourhood in Lewisham town centre. Since its completion, there have been on average 30,000 visits per month from locals.

Judges said that the scheme has 'provided a state-of-the-art community leisure centre surrounded by a new park, which has significantly improved the public realm'. Its quirky elevation was developed with local artists and the name of the centre was chosen through a community competition, perfectly embodying the essence of the award.
