Morden Wharf is the last piece of the complex puzzle that is Greenwich Peninsula, an opportunity area that over the last twenty years has become a symbol for ambitious regeneration, architecture and socio-economic growth.
The focus is now firmly on Peninsula West, where Morden Wharf will have a transformative effect on the area, where our pioneering approach will inspire a destination with a strong sense of place, filled with abundant life, culture, green space, industry, heritage and entrepreneurialism.
A PLACE REIMAGINED
Our seasoned regeneration expertise tells us that successful, happy places are ones that feature a multi-layered mix of uses, all integrated and interconnected.
That’s why at Morden Wharf much-needed new homes sit amongst innovative workspaces, industrial units, retail and community spaces, all interwoven into a beautiful green landscape that includes a 3.9 acre landscaped public park featuring 275m of river frontage and a new public square hosting events, gatherings and markets.
A COMMUNITY REAWAKENED
Morden Wharf is a multi-faceted place for the local community to live, work, play and thrive, a destination development for visitors to explore, a bold new vision for what a London neighbourhood should be.
Alongside 1,500 new homes for Londoners of which 35% are affordable, Morden Wharf features an abundance of facilities to benefit and incubate a new community, delivering up to 20,000 sq ft of community space – including a new children’s nursery and other community facilities – in addition to a wide range of age- specific play places, communal allotments and landscaped public spaces, each with their own distinct character and designed to foster and encourage communal interaction.
WE WILL DELIVER
From marshland to industrial might, this was where some of the world’s first submarine cables were made, where ships were manufactured by innovative steam-driven machines, where soapworks and ropeworks thrived.
Relatively unscathed through the first world war, the second world war brought scarcity to industrial materials and workforce, and in 1944 one of the first V1 bombs destroyed The Sea Witch pub and most of the riverfront buildings.
Throughout the 20th Century Morden Wharf had many uses, from a cement works to a refinery making animal food and fertiliser to a home for several scrap metal companies. The site’s emphasis was on large-scale industry until market forces sparked its slow decline and the eventual demolition of all but three buildings, leaving the ailing Morden Wharf we know today.
A PLACE ON PAUSE
Steeped in history and heritage, complex and challenging, from the very start we understood Morden Wharf was the fitting next test for our seasoned expertise in turning unloved, long-forgotten areas into places of real value for communities, for stakeholders, for all.
From the first time we stepped on the Morden Wharf site in 2012, one of the last strategic sites on the Peninsula, we envisioned exactly what this place should be – a jewel in the crown of the borough of Greenwich, a true exemplar of soulful regeneration, a place that benefits the local community and visitors alike, a best-in-class mixed-use scheme for London.Disclaimer
The Royal Borough Greenwich’s Planning Committee has resolved to grant planning consent the OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture) designed Morden Wharf.
The development by U+I will deliver 1,500 new homes in 12 buildings, where 35% will be affordable. The scheme is set in more than 6 acres of high-quality public realm including a 4-acre landscaped park opening up more than 275m of Thames riverfront that includes a river beach.
