The latest increase to previously agreed levels of new homes in Greenwich has been seen as a consultation begins at Plot 19.05 on the Peninsula.
Plans were approved over four years ago in January 2017 but Knight Dragon all but ceased work on new building in recent years. Now they’re back, and new plans would see an increase from 281 to 431. Despite slow build rates, Knight Dragon have submitted plans to increase homes across the Peninsula, with the latest masterplan taking numbers above 17,000. That was four years after a pervious masterplan for 15,000 was approved.
Four blocks are planned on the plot facing Chandler’s Avenue.
Residents have expressed concern about parking. Despite many flats being car-free, enforcement is poor.
These are blocks approved in 2017:
And these are revised blocks:
A fair bit chunkier and less elegant. The step-back seen on the left in the 2017 image is gone, and proportion and massing losses elegance for a lumpen appearance. Roof gardens are gone. Tacked-on balconies are now added. No commercial space is proposed.
Blocks to the north may not progress particularly quickly, as sites earmarked for housing are now car parks due to Silvertown Tunnel construction.
