Spanish starchitect and engineer Santiago Calatrava is lined up for work on a major £1 billion project at Greenwich Peninsula
The architect’s scheme – which will be his first in London – is set to be revealed next week by developer Knight Dragon.
Calatrava, who recently completed a new transport hub at the World Trade Centre site in New York (pictured bottom), is believed to be working on plans to revamp North Greenwich tube station as part of Allies and Morrison’s masterplan for the area.
The masterplan, which was granted planning in 2015, replaced Terry Farrell’s 2004 Greenwich Peninsula masterplan and includes more than 15,000 homes, 19ha of public spaces, a film studio and 300,000m2 commercial buildings.
Allies and Morrison is working on affordable housing in the area, while last year Penoyre and Prasad won a competition to expand the local school.
