Viewing platform coming to Greenwich Peninsula
Ever wanted to watch a tunnel being built? Now’s your chance as plans are in to construct a viewing platform on the Greenwich Peninsula at the corner of Edmund Halley Way and West Parkside.
Knight Dragon are behind the plans which they call “a decorative folly that conceals a viewing platform, drawing sightlines through central park towards the Victorian terraces / Design District site”.
A five year life span is expected. According to plans, “the floors create canopies that we can utilise for outdoor community programming – jazz, circus, theatre and community workshops.”
The site was formerly fountains but has been fenced off for years. Presumably it was there when the Millenium celebrations were underway.
I can’t quite remember any fountains. All I really recall from the 2000 celebration was the giant shed showing Blackadder then the dome itself with the escalator through a giant human heart.
The planning reference is 18/1471/F
