Greenwich development rising more than six years after approval

Work appears to finally be moving ahead on a plot in Greenwich that will see 431 homes.

For some months Knight Dragon’s development has seen preparatory work, but given how slow the developer builds (it’s now six and a half years since first approval on this plot) you can never tell  if it would proceed, but a crane is now evident on site.

Plot 19.05 is red coloured block

Plot 19.05 was first approved in January 2017. Nothing then happened for some years. Knight Dragon submitted revised plans which were then approved in 2022.

Now work is finally moving onto construction proper it appears.

The site sits to the east of the Peninsula with existing housing to the south and east. A park sits to the west with undeveloped plots to the north.

Plot 19.05

Housing numbers were increased as part of an overall uplift across Knight Dragon’s plot on the Peninsula above 17,000 units.

The previous design – seen below – was dropped.

Previous plan ditched

After years of inaction some plots are now underway including 18.02. This will see a 30-floor tower amongst shorter blocks.

This sits between the park and St Mary Magdalene school and will see almost 500 homes.

Now underway

And finally in recent weeks reserved matters have been submitted for two towers to the north west of the peninsula.

This covers plots 1.02 and 1.03 and was covered here last week.

Reserved matters recently submitted to Greenwich Council

In coming weeks we should expect detailed plans for towers to the east of the peninsula. Again, these are plots that have sat empty for 25 years now since work on the Millennium Dome got underway.
