Delay to Deptford’s Paynes & Borthwick Wharves redevelopment

The Paynes & Borthwick Wharves redevelopment at Deptford has been halted.

The £60m project which would have included 275 flats and a diversion to the Thames Path has been delayed indefinately by developer Lane Castle.

Estate agent King Sturge launched the scheme last June at its Canary Wharf office backed by extensive advertising. The intended completion date was January 2009.

Planning permission was granted only after a long dispute with the Creekside Forum, representing local residents and conservationists, which objected to the demolition of Borthwick Wharf for an 18 storey tower. 

The current Thames Path upstream route follows Borthwick Street behind the wharves before turning inland into Watergate Street.
