‘ONE SE8’ was conceived as the creation of a new design quarter that is contemporary, robust, imaginative, mixed use, lively, energetic and offers a balance of uses capable of sustaining this vision.
An opportunity created by the extension of the DLR with Deptford Bridge station immediately adjacent to the site. Delivery of a restaurant, café, private cinema and gym was included in the first phase of development to create a new destination at the heart of this new community.
This development was the first commitment in a deprived area of East London which has acted as a catalyst for regeneration to create a lively, new London district, highlighted by further subsequent developments such as the award winning Laban Centre.
