Residential Peninsula Quays
Greenwich Peninsula is designed to be a completely new sustainable community which provides new homes, excellent restaurants and cafes, lively bars, world class entertainment, schools, colleges, health centres and state-of-the-art office space for pioneering businesses in carefully designed green space, with parkland, cycle-paths and extensive river frontage.
Peninsula Quays is a new residential district on a site which is currently vacant and represents a unique opportunity to deliver a new, high quality London destination. The architecture of the new district maximises the riverside views and views to Canary Wharf, Docklands and historic Greenwich by positioning the taller residential towers away from the River to the East of the site and terracing the mansion blocks and townhouses down to the waterside.
The first phase of development delivers landmark architecture and highly desirable residential buildings.
Located next to the iconic 02 Arena, two towers and three mansion blocks contain 611 affordable and private apartments which are oriented around landscaped courtyards which help to promote a sense of community.
During the design development, consultation was undertaken with London & Quadrant, Greater London Authority, Royal Borough of Greenwich, Transport for London and Greenwich Society, among others. The development was designed in accordance with the Mayor’s London Housing Design Guide, London & Quadrant’s affordable homes standards, Lifetime Homes and was designed to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes.
