Hall Mcknight has become the latest practice to secure planning for a major high-rise residential scheme on the Greenwich Peninsula
The 242-home scheme, which is the firm’s biggest project to date, features a rasied central courtyard surrounded by four blocks, including a 26-storey tower.
Officially known as plot 18.02 West Parkside (shown in red below, the development will sit towards the south-eastern tip of a new masterplan for the area by Allies and Morrison and is backed by developer Knight Dragon.
Meanwhile, plans by Alison Brooks Architects for the nearby plot 19.04 Lower Riverside were given the green light this month too (shown in orange below).
Each of the schemes provides 25 per cent affordable housing.
Earlier this year Knight Frank revealed plans for a huge 130,000m2 office and transport hub scheme by Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava on the site of the nearby North Greenwich Underground station (see AJ 02.02.17).
