Will this be the next residential project to be built? The Greenwich Peninsular is slowly filling out its master plan. Every time a new feature like the Skywalk or the Cable car is shown in a video or still image rendering, some of the previously white buildings have suddenly gain character and colour, this is because those project designs have been finalised and are next in line to be built. So how soon will the residential project next to the Peninsula’s riverboat pier be built?
The project will have homes that Crest Nicholson will be offering to potential future residents. After speaking to the sales department, a definite date has not been set for the project however they believe that construction may start in 2013 and not this year.
The residential block named, east riverside, is part of the master plan’s district called peninsula riverside. It will be located adjacent to the pier and along side the cable car. East Riverside will provide 305 one, two and three bedroom apartments, together with approximately 5,000 sq ft of retail floor space. Some of the apartments will have Roof gardens, raised courtyards and balconies that create a range of external spaces from which residents can enjoy the riverside setting. There will also be 120 car parking spaces for residents.
The project has been designed by architects FLACQ who say “The design makes reference to its riverside location, from a colour palette derived from river vessels to the shapes of stacked shipping containers.”
What other developments are next in line for the peninsula? We will have more on that in the next few days.
