Plans have been submitted to demolish another former pub building in Greenwich. This time it’s the building that became the curious and quirky Greenwich Book Place. The oft-missed Greenwich Phantom covered the owner’s fight with developers back in 2011. He won that round, but this application suggests things have since changed.

The adjacent development is almost complete. It’s a Family Mosaic scheme named “The Gramercy”. Here’s a photo taken a couple of weeks ago:


Sandwiched in between these developments stands the attractive Lord Hood pub beside Up the Creek Comedy Club. Plans for the pub’s demolition were approved earlier this year.

And finally, another pub in Greenwich is to be brought down imminently. The Old Loyal Britons on Thames Street will be coming down for more flats.
