Work to install a new public space between towers in Woolwich has opened to the public with little fanfare in recent days.
The inimitable Woolwich Pigeon sums it up well:
Bellagio: We’ve got style
Trevi: We’ve got romance
Dubai: We’ve got size
Woolwich : How about all three with a view of the historic Thames? pic.twitter.com/05kTlj5NJh

Fountains and a green space are included.
I’ve been covering this space for a few years now. A post here looked at it back in 2018. The image above incidentally shows design alterations to forthcoming towers, including the addition of yellow on balconies and alterations at street level.
Berkeley Homes are behind the new space which sits between recently completed towers and those currently under construction on the former Waterfront leisure centre car park.
A large expanse of green named Maribor Park currently exists beside the new space.
In time some of this will be built upon and a green strip will run from the newly created space towards the town centre.
This will inevitably prove to be contentious in years to come.
