Plans for a new spectacular landmark glass building on Greenwich Peninsula has been unveiled and we think it looks amazing!

The incredible new structure, which has been designed by Santiago Calatrava will cost in the region of £1bn. The scheme, known as Peninsula Place, will offer three towers all reaching more than 30-storeys and will also include the following features:

  • 80ft high winter garden
  • 800 apartments, which 200 will be classed affordable
  • 300sq ft of office space
  • 80 shops, restaurants and bars
  • Cinema
  • Performance venue 
  • 500 room hotel 

The new scheme is sure to create a new buzzing cultural destination for London and will attract visitors from all over. It will also offer passengers travelling to North Greenwich one of the best tube stations not only in London but in the world!

Santiago Calatrava, a spanish born Architect and Structural Engineer recently told The Standard: “It is an honour to be designing such a piece of fabric of Lonon, a city I love.” 

This is positive news post-Brexit as it shows a vote of confidence and on top of this it looks simply stunning. There are no details on when this scheme is likely to gain planning permission but we will keep you updated as soon as we find out.
