Climax of Millennium Village competition approaches

  • Comment

The competition to design a 3000-home Millennium Village on the Greenwich Peninsula site is drawing to a climax, with a winner set to be announced in around a fortnight's time.

Judging has now taken place of the four shortlisted teams: Manhattan Loft/Osborne is working with czwg, which is masterplanning the development and has asked 12 of the biggest-name architects around to come on board: Foster and Partners, Michael Hopkins and Partners, Zaha Hadid, Edward Cullinan, Ian Ritchie, Bennetts Associates, Pringle Richards Sharratt, Lifschutz Davidson, Caruso St John, Koski, Solomon and Ruthven and Branson Coates.

The Barratt/Laing/Wimpey/Persimmon consortium includes prp Architects, Allies and Morrison, Feilden Clegg and edaw; while the Countryside/Taylor Woodrow team includes Ralph Erskine, Hunt Thompson and Baker Brown Mackay.

The Hutchison Whampoa consortium includes Frankl & Luty, mbm Architects and Bill Dunster.

Culture secretary Chris Smith visited Portsmouth's £86 million Millennium project last week, masterplanned by hgp Greentree Allchurch Evans. He was shown around the site for the tourist, leisure attraction and 500ft Millennium tower. The scheme hit problems recently over who has the final word on building consent, the council or the government. A Dutch delegation also toured the waterfront and Historic Dockyard last week, seeking ideas on regenerating the waterfront of their capital city.
