The Peninsula is changing and developing all the time and there are massively exciting plans for the future. A new development above North Greenwich station will include a Winter Garden a Galleria and Bridge. When the development is finished you’ll emerge from the underground station into a striking green space.
The winter garden will be an urban forest that sits beneath a glass cupola, which floods the space with natural light and unfolds to let in the air and the weather. Above, three towers will gradually step back to reveal a series of green terraces.
The Galleria will be a promenade of pavement cafes, shops and restaurants, leading to the foot bridge, which links to a new public park on the Thames. It’s going to look amazing.
The Design District will be home to a whole new London community. In five years’ time that community will triple. In ten, it will be the capital’s most boldly modern cultural landscape.
16 front doors to 16 very different buildings. United by a landscape that celebrates openness and social interaction. 8 award-winning architects were each given a “sugar cube” to design. Inspired by old photographs and construction site and the diversity of Londoners. The result is a riot of unexpected contrasts, lanes and open workshops, double-height studios and shared open spaces in between.
