Hard to tell if this is any good or not? It would of been advantageous for the whole peninsula if there was a park connecting the existing park in the centre to the river. There's more than enough land to develop here but because there is no real master plan for the peninsula leaving it purely to developers will result in a lost opportunity.

I think it would provide a great view from Greenwich, probably won't notice gaps difference between Canary Wharf and Modern Wharf, it would look like modern Wharf is part of Canary Wharf skyline rather than being isolated alone.

This skyscraper must be from 100-140m+, judging by the floor level? I hope they will design a stylish building, not American box type.

Giving the car park a riverside view (sunset over Canary Wharf) seems a bit silly if you ask me.

Weird how the redline boundary includes the existing industrial, new bus garage and vacant land beyond it but this application doesn't deal with that at all. In fact it's weird the new bus garage is in the redline boundary, only opened this year!

Its worth spending a couple of minutes filling in the survey telling them how having a large podium facing the river purely for a car park is more 1960's than 21stC.

The architecture looks a bit... retro (to be kind) but I'm keeping an open mind until I've seen the full set of designs!

What a ridiculous image. Do they honestly think people fall for that?

The Morden Wharf website has been updated with the latest plans:

Some images from the site:







I went to the exhibition and took a few more photos. By the way, you can see a PDF of all the exhibition boards on the website I listed above.

Interesting but over developed. The rear two rows of buildings are far too close together. It doesn't seem to be planned to allow much amenity to those apartments and the planning is very 60's i.e plonk some towers in a green space.

It's on a 15-year build schedule, according to one of the representatives of the developer!

I like elements of it, such as the tapered base to one of the towers and the green walls, but it's a very cramped site. It also needs much better connections to the rest of the peninsula. A wide green bridge (like the one in Mile End) across the Blackwall Tunnel Approach would be a start.

Wondered that too ! The third render (the night-time one) has tons of interesting-looking towers loitering in the background...
