An application has been made by developer Knight Dragon to expand a Greenwich peninsula building for a new supermarket.
The proposed location is close to the existing Tesco supermarket and Design District.
Public space would see a permanent structure built to expand a ground floor unit empty since January 2021.
The application states:
“6 Mitre Passage site is well positioned to provide an enhanced commercial amenity space at the ground floor as it is located within the North Greenwich District Centre and is directly adjacent to the Upper Riverside residential neighbourhood, Phase 1 of ‘The Tide’ linear park, the Thames Path, and the O2 Arena.
“The North Greenwich Tube Station and Bus Terminal are both approximately 200m away while the IFS Cloud Cable Car is approximately 150m away. Ravensbourne College, the new Design District and various shops and restaurants are also in the immediate vicinity.
“The proposed retail unit at 6 Mitre Passage is intended to be let to a prominent grocery store chain.”
It highlights a long standing complaint about a lack of food retail outlets.
“The feedback Knight Dragon have from residents is that they feel they are lacking a choice in respect of the convenience retail offering and in order to meet that demand we have sought to bring in another operator to deliver that choice.”
