Regeneration specialist U+I has submitted plans for Morden Wharf, comprising 1,500 new homes, employment spaces, and a landscaped park along 275m of the River Thames. Located on Greenwich Peninsula in London, the mixed-use scheme designed by OMA includes more than six acres of high-quality public realm, 12 high quality, and tenure-blind residential buildings, as well as commercial, retail and community spaces. Submitted to the Royal Borough of Greenwich for approval, the U+I plans have been developed in collaboration with the local community and key stakeholders. Including a three acres Riverfront Park, the proposal opens up visually to the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site and Canary Wharf and leads visitors, workers, and residents directly off the Thames Path. Inspired by the site’s history, the landscape will also upgrade and increase the width of the Thames Path, accommodating cyclists and pedestrians. The open space at Morden Wharf will include play and recreation space, helping to address the existing deficit of open space in the area.
