Proposed Greenwich tower block could see 352 new homes – South London News

By Joe Coughlan, Local Democracy Reporter

Plans have been revealed for a set of tower blocks stretching up to 26 storeys high and a new public square in Greenwich Peninsula.

Greenwich council has received plans for a set of three residential blocks, including 352 new homes, featuring 340 new student rooms.

The project would reportedly include a communal garden and a new public square with space for shops on the Boord Street site.

The site is based beside the Blackwall and Silvertown tunnel approaches and was previously used as the Evening Standard distribution centre.

Planning documents from Allies and Morrison, on behalf of Fairview, said 35 per cent of the new homes in the project would be ‘affordable’.

The new public space, known as Marsh Square, would sit at the junction of Boord Street and a new street called Marsh Walk, which would arise from the project, which would be lined with mature trees.

Planning documents said: “Marsh Square is a space for all, its landscape strategy weaving together different areas into an engaging new piece of the city.”

The plans said ‘rigorous’ engagement meetings were held with stakeholders and planning officers to develop the scheme.

The project follows a wider plan from Knight Dragon to create 17,500 new homes around Greenwich Peninsula, which the current application cited as one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe.
