A look at the planned Greenwich Millenium Village tower beside ecological park
Last week I covered plans for a consultation regarding a 20-storey tower planned for the next stage of Greenwich Millennium “village”. Images of the tower and energy centre are now available.
Below is a map showing different the site. The tower location is in red beside the lake.
It’s a pretty generic design based on this render. A welcome feature is a ground floor commercial unit with outdoor seating beside the park.
A timescale of other future stages is also included, with other mid-rise elements getting underway.
Here’s the planned energy centre:
It’s important to note that the homes here are not part of the 15,600 homes Knight Dragon Masterplan. I often hear Greenwich Council referring to 15,000 homes when talking about the wider area and not just the Knight Dragon area. Questions to TfL about transport from them refer to 15,000 for example.
It’s actually at least 20,000 when GMV’s next stages are considered alongside Enderby Wharf, Precision, River Gardens and AEGs planned tower. Morden Wharf is another vast site that will add to that, and the 20,000 figure doesn’t include 7,500 at Charlton Riverside which is almost adjacent to Greenwich Millennium Village
