Greenwich development including two towers reaches beyond halfway point

A number of residential blocks on Greenwich peninsula has passed the halfway point with hundreds of homes due on site.

The blocks are being developed by L&Q on Knight Dragon land beside St Mary Magdalene school.

It’s also immediately north of one of the earliest phases of Greenwich Millennium Village which itself is seeing work on future phases.

A total of 476 homes are on the way with the first set for occupation by 2026.

The entire plot should be finished by 2027.

Rising up. Still some way to go on tallest tower

When complete the tallest block will stand at 30-floors in height. A lower tower is interspersed with mid-rise blocks.

Homes for those on the social housing waiting list are included at the “London Affordable Rent” tenure. This is a type of rented homes introduced by the Mayor of London in 2016.

In regards to this development, Pat Slattery, Greenwich Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Neighbourhoods and Homelessness stated:

“Greenwich Peninsula is a flagship development of high importance for the Borough, particularly the affordable housing provision. We therefore welcome L&Q’s long-term commitment to delivering high-quality affordable homes for our residents.”

This plot is just one of many across the peninsula ultimately under Knight Dragon’s plan for more than 17,000 homes.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.
