Morden Wharf, Greenwich
Where the U in United
and Industrious came from
Much needed homes, community and business space are set to be created in Greenwich, along with access to a new riverside walk on one of the largest remaining brownfield riverside areas of London.
With U+I, Richard led the team and business that acquired and masterplanned this impressive site, forming a unique partnership with a 300-year-old charity, Morden College.
Spread over 19-acres on the famous Greenwich Peninsula, home to the Millennium Dome and now the 02 Arena, the new neighbourhood is designed by world-famous architecture practice OMA, delivering 1,500 homes for Londoners with over a third being affordable.
This £800 million project has nearly 300 metres of Thames riverbank, with a beach. and will deliver a new riverside public park and Thames Clipper dock.
The proposals also include a new leisure quarter, including the historic Sea Witch pub, and a working boathouse for The Queen’s row barge, Gloriana, on one of the site’s historic jetties.
