O2 To Get High-Rise Neighbour

The genesis of Greenwich Peninsula is something of a long and drawn out affair that is only happening slowly and site by site. The latest piece of that jigsaw is the designs by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands for Plot N0301 on a site directly to the west of the Millennium Dome.

The proposals are hardly a surprise - this particular site has had a high-rise hotel tower masterplanned for it ever since the first details were released of the plans for the Greenwich Peninsula back at the start of the previous decade by then-developer Meridian Delta. They have however been gradually scaled down in size from the initial 100 metres plus that was planned in terms of height.

Now the developer is Ansco Hotels and they plan on building a 452 bedroom four-star hotel with an attached 3,000 square metres of event space in a lower-rise podium that will face the nearby Thames complete with a concave fašade that relates to the shape of the passing river, and a varying number of roof heights to help break up the mass..

Also attached to the hotel tower will be a taller 24 storey residential of 80.8 metres with a strong vertical emphasis of striped cladding thanks to the vertical fins. The building has been orientated to angle away from the hotel building to avoid the impression of a wall.

Housing 100 serviced apartments that will draw directly on the services the hotel provides, it will specifically consist of 16 studio flats, 21 one bedroomed flats, 48 two bedroomed flats and 15 flats with three bedrooms. An undercroft parking area for 250 cars is also included in the project.
