Plans for a cruise liner terminal at Enderby Wharf have been abandoned according to Greenwich Council leader Danny Thorpe.
Current landowners Morgan Stanley are not proceeding with plans passed in 2015.
Following a meeting between @Royal_Greenwich & @MorganStanley last week, I have just received confirmation that the #enderbywharf cruise liner terminal in #Greenwich is no longer going to be developed and will not be built out as part of the scheme.

Former owner Barrett Homes had planned to build the port with no on-shore power in addition to towers and 477 homes, but sold the site after 2015.
Phase 1 has been completed by Barratt:
What happens now is somewhat of an unknown. Morgan Stanley may sell the site. They are not known as large housing developers.
Thorpe mentions that he will press whoever developers the site to include a park – though a precedent has been set through the 2015 approval for number of homes and developers will not do so unless it financially stacks up. They are, after all, not charities.
NoToxicPort have campaigned for years against the lack of on-shore power for large vessels.
In place of the cruise terminal scheme a high density housing development is expected. Directly next door is Mordon Wharf, and plans for 1,500 homes will be consulted upon in coming weeks. I will cover that shortly.
More as it comes in.
