Regeneration developer U+I has announced plans for a 1,500-home scheme at Greenwich Peninsula called Morden Wharf, designed by Dutch architect OMA.

The homes will be contained within 11 separate buildings set alongside six acres of landscaped parks and public realm. U+I said 35% of homes will be affordable, with the block “tenure blind” and featuring solar panels and air source heat pumps to provide low carbon power.

The developer also said the scheme will provide commercial space for 600 jobs, covering bars, restaurants shops and light industrial uses.

Richard Upton, chief development officer at U+I, said: “Our vision is to create a vibrant community rooted in the site’s heritage with world class public realm. We will bring together new homes, retail, leisure, employment and an extensive riverfront park to create a dynamic and integrated neighbourhood on the banks of the Thames.”
