Residential Towers

Greenwich residential tower development granted planning permission

Planning permission has been granted for a new residential scheme in south-east London.

The Greenwich Peninsula development will see the creation of 400 residential units within a cluster of four tower blocks with work and leisure spaces on the ground floor.

The towers will be 28, 17, 12 and five storeys in height with the site’s central park acting as a focal point for the community.

The development has been designed by Alison Brooks Architects for property developer Knight Dragon and is one of the largest regeneration projects in London.

The design was inspired by the industrial heritage of the local area and the cast-iron clad chimneys of Greenwich Power Station.

“We’re delighted to be working with Knight Dragon and that our designs received unanimous consent from the Royal Borough of Greenwich,” said Alison Brooks.  

“Our intention was to create a robust, adaptable urban block with generous proportions that reinforces the Peninsula’s cosmopolitan identity.”

The new homes will contain a variety of types and tenures, while each building has 360-degree views, colonnades, roof gardens and co-working spaces.

The Greenwich Peninsula development will sit across the River Thames from Canary Wharf and consist of seven new neighbourhoods master planned by Allies and Morrison.
