Work well underway at hundreds of Greenwich homes

Construction work at Greenwich Millennium Village continues apace as new phases rise and the tallest block nears completion.

A block beside the ecology park has long been a point of contention with various plans over the years of varying height – including up to 20 floors.

In the end what was in the masterplan is what’s been built.

This gives an overview of various plots:

Overview of Greenwich Millennium Village plans

Plots 202 and 203 to the east of the park are now rising:

These will comprise 241 homes.

Plot 301 to the south has recently completed. That has 135 homes.

There appears to be issues with an earlier phases as protective glass panels are missing:

Panels offer a barrier to aggregate works at Angerstein Wharf next door.

The overall Greenwich Millennium Village project is now over 20 years old and still has some way to go to completion.

Site overview

Remaining phases are closest to Bugsby’s Way and rather unfriendly roads for pedestrians.

Roads are designed for vehicles with pedestrians and cyclist long down the list

In future 1,500 homes will sit the other side of Bugsby’s Way if plans to build on B&Q and the car park near Ikea are approved.

However, the first phase at least some way from poorly designed roads has aged well with some wonderful landscaping.

Compared to most housing built around the late 1990s and early 2000s this was a cut above, and by some distance.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

You can help with running costs of this site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    ,Greenwich Millennium Village has seen under construction for over 20 years. Where does time go. The new phases of new homes are now well under construction bringing many new homes.

    However as highlighted by John the roads around Bugsby Way, Pear Tree Way are not safe for Pedestrians Cyclist etc. We need to see better road crossings public realm, pavement and lighting improvements to make it safe for Pedestrians and cyclists in the area. As we encourage people to walk cycle and use public transport more. Money must be made available to carry out these works.
