In an exciting development for block properties, 15,000 new
homes are being built in the Greenwich Peninsula, along with a
whole area focused on design and creative businesses.
This new district of artist's studios and creative workspaces is
being carved into the landscape as part of a 20-year plan that will
see a phenomenal district being created along the Thames' river
bank. The £8.4billion neighbourhood will comprise of more than
15,000 new properties, sitting pretty in the shadow of the famous
The residential blocks will be supported by a futuristic new
Tube station, schools, offices, a hotel, an ecology park and
another performance venue. In addition, the planned 'Design
District' will include a cluster of 16 uniquely-designed, trendy
buildings with space for art, technology, craft, music, food and
digital tech companies.
1,800 creative artists and start-up businesses will mix with
independent market traders and design companies to get their
businesses off the ground in this wonderful environment. What a
fabulous place it will be for people to work and live! The
designers' properties are being created by teams of architects,
each of whom was briefed to design a pair of unidentical buildings
to be situated around a transparent market hall, with stalls
serving world cuisine. It sounds amazing!
We haven't yet seen plans for the residential blocks, but we
can't wait to find out how the area will be transformed. We
think the properties will be leasehold, so we're looking forward to
meeting with the landlords to offer our block property management
services. If you're the leaseholder of an apartment in a
block property - whether artistically-designed or traditional, or
you're the landlord of a residential block, we'd love to help you
ensure your investment is permanently maintained to the highest and
safest standards. Please call Roisin on 0845 456 8775 to find out
more about our award-winning services.

change during the period of this 20-year plan. It's certainly going
to be interesting to see!)
