Greenwich Design District takes shape
A new attraction coming to Greenwich Peninsula in 2020 is quickly taking shape as various structure takes shape on site.
Once open, the site will provide a market, studio space, galleries and food court.
According to backers the area will accommodate 1,800 people working across the site. Film screenings, exhibitions and more are also on the cards.
It’s an attempt to bring more life and tourists to this part of north Greenwich and entice those who may head only to the o2.
Last year saw the Icon shopping centre open and over the summer “The Tide” walkway completed. The Magazine music and events venue opened in late September and has hosted a few events.
Each building on site was designed by a separate architectural practice without knowledge of other designs. This blind approach should see some beguiling variations.
Will this attempt at place-making succeed? We’ll find out in 2020.
