Squire and Partners submit planning application
Squire and Partners has submitted a planning application for this large mixed-use development in south-east London. The scheme will be built on 5ha of derelict industrial land south of the River Thames and will form part of the ongoing programme to regenerate the Greenwich Peninsula.
The competition-winning design includes plans for a new boatyard, ecology centre, 700 residential units, a 132-room hotel, retail units and studio workshops. If the plans are given the green light, over half the site will become public space with a new square at the heart of the scheme and a 16mwide river frontage.
Each of the towers will have a continuous glazed skin and will boast two 'sky gardens' for its residents, providing each group of 10 floors with its own communal area.
