I have had a search around and found a document of the agreement between Quintain and Knight Dragon which I reported earlier on in this thread and the following page outlines their recent proposals to accelerate the project.



So it seems a start across the peninsula could be imminent and especially Peninsula Quays.

Quintain signals start of Greenwich Peninsula
Construction Enquirer
26 November 2012
Quote:
Developer Quintain has submitted detailed planning applications to start the transformation of the remaining 140 acres of Greenwich Peninsula.

The firm confirmed today that it has submitted detailed planning applications for the first three plots, comprising 506 homes, which will be considered by the Planning Committee next February.

If consent is granted, construction will start next summer.

Quintain is working in a joint venture with Hong Kong investor Knight Dragon with plans to build another 10,000 homes at Greenwich.

The developer also confirmed today that it has drawn-up plans to accelerate the delivery of the first 2,870 of the 10,000 homes on 11 residential plots.

Developer Quintain has submitted a detailed planning application for the first homes in its 10,000-home plan for the transformation of Greenwich Peninsula in east London.

Quintain said it has submitted plans for the first three plots, comprising 506 homes, and expects a decision in February.

The developer said it has progressed plans for delivery of the first third of the overall development – or 2,870 homes – by signing an updated memorandum of understanding with the Greater London Authority.

Quintain announced a joint venture with Hong Kong investor Knight Dragon in June, injecting renewed life into the regeneration project.

Contractors are also bidding to build a £65m hotel for entertainment giant AEG adjacent to the O2 Arena on the peninsula.

Quintain also announced its half-year results to 30 September 2012 and a pre-tax loss of £29.1m, compared to a pre-tax profit of £3.7m for the same period the previous year.

At Wembley the developer said it was on track to complete the London Designer Outlet shopping centre next autumn.

The opening will mark the completion of the 1.8 million sq ft first phase of development on the 8.5 million sq ft Wembley scheme.

The developer said it was making progress changing its focus to become a “leading London development and investment specialist”.

Interesting to see this outdoor concert venue/stadium idea was included in the council's Greenwich Peninsula West masterplan:

Enderby Wharf

Sorry guys if these have been posted elsewhere. Looking at a local architects website I came across a preliminary site capacity study and planning appraisal for key riverside site in London, close to Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena. The proposals included 600 apartments, luxury hotels, offices and riverside restaurants.

The towers need setting further apart, they're virtually overlapping. Great views of your neighbours from those elevations It isn't something to get excited about, but I can't say I hate it.. Indifferent.com.

Is this just an architects proposals, or have they been submitted for as actual applications?

Enderby Wharf is where they're meant to be building a new cruise terminal - with slightly differing plans depending on which thread you look at it seems.

I have no idea neuphin Would'nt even be able to locate it on a map.

However the page within the website for this scheme is relatively new and they are pretty on the ball and I hadn't seen them before when browsing the London forum.

I much prefer the high density, lower height scheme that you've posted. The towers in the other are like Ferge said, far to close. Looks stupid.

I think this whole project is amazing, the shear scale of the development is fantastic and will greatly benefit the whole of London, and this development will also fill in a huge urban gap in London the Greenwich Peninsula has remained and empty wasteland for decades and now its finally being transformed into a new urban area for London.

Going through Greenwichs Planning portal, planing apps for the 1st four plots in the South East corner have come through.

Here they are.

1st a brief overview. Looks like they are trying to develop chunks at a time. I have not found plans for MO101 or MO116 yet.






Student block M120







MO117









Mo115









MO114

Those renders look great but you know in reality those flats will never look that good - chuck in some cheap materials and cladding and there you go.

The quality of stuff built on the Peninsula so far would give the impression this will be a decent development.

True, but I do question the durability of the build materials and general upkeep. Greenwich Millennium Village is already looking weathered - plastic facades peeling, wood facades untreated and decaying, holes appearing in the concourses, trees slanting, weeds growing in the flowerbeds.

How do I say it...

... I married a 20 year old and in 5 years time she looks 50.
... I bought a new Ferarri, drove it to the supermarket and it clocked 50 miles.

Whatever happened to longevity?

I don't like most of what is on the peninsula, the college buildings genuinely give me eyestrain (like when I try to use a Nintendo 3DS).

The Ravensbourne College is a huge let down and unfortunately it's not weathering as fast as other parts of the peninsula (after all they used Lego). We're stuck with it!

The TFL buildings though are superb, though I'm still not sure of the brown building. Brown??!

Any mention of construction start dates on any of these projects?

I have to say, I am not just being needlessly critical, the cladding genuinely hurts my eyes. I believe this has happened to quite a few people.
