Greenwich Design District featuring market and galleries now rising

Structures at Greenwich Peninsula’s forthcoming Design District have recently started to poke above hoardings as the site takes shape.

A former green space will become a number of buildings comprising workspaces, galleries, food courts and include a market.

Knight Dragon states it will bring “together ideas in design, art, tech, food, craft and music”.

A market hall is the centrepiece with food stalls on the first floor and crafts and galleries below around the site’s focal point.

A basketball court is located on one building which will be free to use year-round to all.

Each building was developed “blind” by a different architectural practice with 1,800 people working across the area when complete according to the site’s website, which seems a very high number to me.

The site last October

The site was due to open in 2019 but looking at current progress it seems certain to slip into 2020.

Some of these images are taken from the newly opened raised walkway named “The tide”. More on that in a forthcoming post.

Alongside “The Tide” a new 10,000 capacity music and events venue named Magazine is opening near this spot next month.

I run the site myself and pay all hosting and ongoing fees. If you want to help, you can make a one off donation or become a regular supporter through Paypal here
