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