The Coronet site is a Grade II listed art-deco former cinema in Eltham which is in desperate need of redevelopment and a new sustainable use.
In October 2008 we secured planning consent for this important gateway site. Greenwich Councillors voted unanimously to grant permission to turn the former cinema into a vibrant mixed-use development which respects the unique cinematic building.
The plans, which are backed by English Heritage, include 63 residential units, a restaurant based around the old foyer, a 60 seat auditorium for Greenwich University and the redevelopment of neighbouring shops.
The plans provide much needed new housing in addition new space for retail, business and community use and will retain much of the original character of the Grade II listed building including the restoration and refurbishment of the front of the cinema to its original condition.
The Coronet is currently being built out in a joint venture partnership with iPro. The retail space on Well Hall Road is complete and a block is occupied by Tescos with a new residential mews building to the rear.
The former cinema auditorium has been demolished and in its place are apartments centered around a cinema themed courtyard with an iconic scene from ‘Gone with the Wind’ built into one of the walls to celebrate the site’s history as a cinema.
The apartments are a mix of private and shared ownership and as of March 2012, 75% of the private apartments are under offer.
