The Manser Practice has submitted plans for a mixed-use development in Greenwich including a new international cruise terminal
The scheme at Enderby Wharf, east London includes a 2,085m² international cruise terminal, a new public park, and a two residential towers.
Planning permission was originally granted for a cruise terminal on the site in 2012. Since then changes within the cruise industry have had an impact on the design’s requirements, and the size of the scheme has had to increase by more than 80 per cent.
The new terminal building will include a baggage hall, customs, departure lounge, security offices, and a loading bay.
Alongside the cruise terminal the development will provide 263 new homes split across two towers of 31 and 23-storeys and a further 121 homes in a 26-storey tower have also been drawn up by HLM as part of the proposed scheme.
According to the practice the ‘façade concept for the whole site has been inspired by the industrial history of the site - and its importance in the development and manufacture of the Atlantic Cable’. The buildings feature a mix of dark brickwork, bronze panels, and expanded metal mesh elements.
