Residential Peninsula Quays
Greenwich Peninsula is designed to be a completely new sustainable community providing homes, excellent restaurants and cafes, lively bars, world class entertainment, schools, colleges, health centres and state-of-the-art office space for pioneering businesses – all situated in carefully designed green space, with parkland, cycle-paths and extensive river frontage.
Peninsula Quays is a new residential district on a currently-vacant site that represents a unique opportunity to deliver a new, high quality London destination. The architecture of the new district maximises the riverside views and sightlines 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, oriented around landscaped courtyards that 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.
