I hope this turns out well and there is already a lot worth visiting on the peninsula, including a fantastic wildlife centre. But I visited last weekend and there is not a single shop or place to get something to eat among all that new housing. They need to sort that out quick if they want to bring some life to the area.

Seems theres a 122m 32 storey mixed use scheme worked up by Patel Taylor for the Peninsula west of the 02.

Also in related news- I read elsewhere the owners of the O2 will be bringing forward news on there next part of the development which will probably be the hotel element ( I hope they keep the Rogers designed tower).

I hate the fact theres the credit crunch now, when so many projects across the country in early construction or due to start are now on hold. I hope we dont go into recession. I like this development, very exciting.

a bit of a dull photo I'm afraid but shows the current progress of what I'm not sure - is it the College and offices?

Fairly sure the steel structure is on the site of the Ravensbourne College, it fronts right onto the new square overlooking the dome. I think the concrete cores are a separate site, possibly the Terry Farrell offices.

I think Greenwich peninsular is really going to be quiet an interesting place one day...Shame there is only one station there, it needs a DLR or mainline train station to accomodate the massive amount of people who will be living in all that dense housing.

What would be most useful in my opinion is for two bridges to be built, the once vaguely proposed Silvertown bridge and a new pedestrian over to the Isle of Dogs. It would help create a sense that all the areas currently undergoing massive redevelopment, Royal Docks, Leamouth, Isle of Dogs, and the Greenwhich Peninsula are all part of a joined new hemisphere of London. Rather than a collection of isolated residential developments hovering near Canary Wharf, which is what I'm afraid everything will feel like if got wrong.

Bridges will definately make a difference, Greenwich Peninsular should be connected to the IOD, if only to connect it for pedestrians and Cyclists. Maybe even cars too but I doubt that will happen.

I thought the hotel was cancelled when they missed out on a super casino?

Rogers designed tower? Was there an actual design?

I really don’t like the location of the plans for the O2 hotel it will really constrict the dome and make it feel very enclosed blocking views both to and from the area around the dome i would personally like to see a park in its place it would make for a fantastic bit of open space with some of the best views on any part of the river of the CW skyline and the dome. But that seems unlikely.

It will certainly need something more than its existing transport infrastructure the Jubilee line is already bad enough and the majority of journeys from here would be just over the river to the wharf so a bridge for cycles and pedestrians seems like a good way to go.

The more plans i see for the peninsular the more i get excited about what this area is going to be like in future. Its going to be fantastic.

i agree lots to look forward to. if you walk from the o2 to the millennium village (or whatever those colourful new blocks are) there is nothing but grass and brand new pavements, then all of a sudden a tiny row of old fashioned houses and a traditional looking pub - sticks out like a sore thumb but very interesting!

this is from yesterday:

Yes a bridge or tunnel across to wood wharf would be great
Maybe similar to the Sustrans one for Canary Wharf ?

Althought I too didnt think much of the positioning of the hotel I do think that the dome needs to be hugged by lots of buildings on at least one side because at the moment its scale is lost in the wilderness, it really is difficult to make out the scale of the dome and that epic scale is the main feature of its architecture. I think the planned buildings will bring back a sense of scale and this shoudl be welcomed even at the expense of clarity in the sightlines.

I agree. There's already one dome in London with protected sightlines, we don't need another.

Anschutz seeks consent on final portion of the O2
17:28 | 13.08.08
By Jonathan Brasse

Anschutz Entertainment Group has lodged an outline planning application with Greenwich council for the final 30% of the O2 entertainment centre.

The US entertainment group plans to develop 250,000 sq ft of leisure facilities within the centre although it is yet to decide what will be developed.

A spokeswoman said: ‘This would maximise the amount of floor-space we could use. We are looking at a number of options for the space but nothing has been decided yet.’

The O2, formerly known as the Dome, has been open since the turn of the millennium and currently is used for sporting and musical events. It also includes restaurants such as American Bar & Grill, Gaucho and Pizza Express.
