Wrapped by the Thames and a riverside running and cycling track that passes the wetlands of the Peninsula Ecology Park and Greenwich Yacht Club, but just one stop from Canary Wharf, Upper Riverside mixes urban ingenuity with the pull of nature.
Greenwich Peninsula is emerging as the capital’s most boldly modern quarter, providing 15,000 new homes and 13,000 jobs.
A short walk from the Marks Barfield designed NOW Gallery is the new Design District, London’s first permanent home for the creative industries. Designed by eight leading architectural practices, the 16 distinctive buildings will include affordable flexible spaces and workshops. It will become home to a burgeoning collective of artists, designers, musicians, crafts people and new technology pioneers.
With this artistic spirit all around you, you’ll soon discover Damien Hirst’s brass sculpture ‘Mermaid’ and Allen Jones’ pop art work ‘Head In The Wind’ nestled within the reeds and viewed from our own walkway in the sky.
It’s a community built on creativity and doing things its own way.
Surrounded by 1.6 miles of river on three sides, with Tube, Bus, Boat, and Cable Car links.
