Located between historic Greenwich and the millennial O2 Arena, the 2.4-hectare brownfield site at Morden Wharf will combine a new residential development with employment and community uses.

OMA’s scheme for developer U+I follows years of design and consultation. Key to its development is maximizing the potential of the riverfront for public use and access. The existing warehouse on the site is preserved and will house small enterprises and creative businesses. Along the Thames’ edge will sit Morden Park, a 1.6-hectare public park, referencing the site’s marshland beginnings.

“We care very much about the legacy that we deliver in the borough. Twenty five years after the demolition of the sugar factory our proposal will bring this part of Greenwich back to life and we think it is the time for Modern Wharf to be reborn,” said Richard Upton, CEO of U+I.
