Plans to build 1,500 homes in Greenwich have seen Galliard purchase the site from previous owner LandSec U+I.
Plans were approved in 2022 for the site which will see blocks rise to 35 floors in height and a newly created public space beside the Thames.
Landsec U+I previously had plans for a refurbished pier and a home for the Gloriana. Whether that stays the same we wait to see.
Like just about every other major riverside development a Thames Clipper river pier was proposed as well.
Landsec U+I, who have sold the site, are behind plans to redevelop Lewisham shopping centre with 1,700 homes plus further co-living units on site.
Poor quality environment
Morden Wharf sits between the Thames and Tunnel Avenue which is a dismal old stretch of road. It’s a grim old walk to the o2 and North Greenwich tube station.
Plans to improve this area were limited in approved plans.
Galliard don’t have a very good recent track record for tower developments. They heavily cut back recently – or “value engineered” – a prominent block in Shoreditch named “The Stage”. It ended up build with some very drab and quite frankly nasty looking cladding.
An issue to watch if revisions are now made.
The site recently saw a pub on site close for some months after the brewery based in a current warehouse building enter administration earlier this year.
A bus garage is also based on site.
Next door sits Enderby Wharf. Previous plans for three towers and a cruise liner terminal were scrapped. Revised plans were revealed last month with 749 units in three towers.
Earlier today this site also covered news that TfL plan 300 homes a short distance away beside the Silvertown tunnel approach road.
