This site presented an incredible opportunity, immediately adjacent to Sidcup train station. The Fold provides the local community of Sidcup with a vibrant mixed-use development comprising 98 residential apartments, restaurant, office and retail space in a striking and contemporary nine-storey building featuring curved metallic cladding and rooftop gardens.
The development was designed to encourage investment and activity in surburban south east London, providing 21st Century accommodation for people to live, work and relax in.
Designed by world renowned architects Studio Egret West, the building is distinctive and modern, transforming the arrival into Sidcup from the train station. The public realm around the station is also being redeveloped and will create a new character for the area, one that represents the area’s sustainable ambitions and introduces a high quality design to regenerate the local economy and enrich the area.
Planning permission was granted for The Fold in 2009 and is being delivered by developers and contractors United House. Construction began in February 2011 and the building is due for completion in early 2013.Back to top Back to home page
