MORDEN WHARF.
ready and waiting to be reborn

Morden Wharf is the last piece of the complex puzzle that is Greenwich Peninsula, an opportunity area that over the last twenty years has become a symbol for ambitious regeneration, architecture and socio-economic growth.

The focus is now firmly on Peninsula West, where Morden Wharf will have a transformative effect on the area, where our pioneering approach will inspire a destination with a strong sense of place, filled with abundant life, culture, green space, industry, heritage and entrepreneurialism.

A PLACE
REIMAGINED

Our seasoned regeneration expertise tells us that successful,
happy places are ones that feature a multi-layered mix of uses,
all integrated and interconnected.

That’s why at Morden Wharf much-needed new homes sit
amongst innovative workspaces, industrial units, retail and
community spaces, all interwoven into a beautiful green
landscape that includes a 3.9 acre landscaped public park
featuring 275m of river frontage and a new public square
hosting events, gatherings and markets.

history
relived

From marshland to industrial might, this was where some of the world’s first submarine cables were made, where ships were manufactured by innovative steam-driven machines, where soapworks and ropeworks thrived.

Relatively unscathed through the first world war, the second world war brought scarcity to industrial materials and workforce, and in 1944 one of the first V1 bombs destroyed The Sea Witch pub and most of the riverfront buildings.

Throughout the 20th Century Morden Wharf had many uses, from a cement works to a refinery making animal food and fertiliser to a home for several scrap metal companies. The site’s emphasis was on large-scale industry until market forces sparked its slow decline and the eventual demolition of all but three buildings, leaving the ailing Morden Wharf we know today.

A PLACE
ON PAUSE

Steeped in history and heritage, complex and challenging, from the very start we understood Morden Wharf was the fitting next test for our seasoned expertise in turning unloved, long-forgotten areas into places of real value for communities, for stakeholders, for all.

From the first time we stepped on the Morden Wharf site in 2012, one of the last strategic sites on the Peninsula, we envisioned exactly what this place should be – a jewel in the crown of the borough of Greenwich, a true exemplar of soulful regeneration, a place that benefits the local community and visitors alike, a best-in-class mixed-use scheme for London.

HERITAGE
RETURNED

Morden Wharf includes a proposal for a new, permanent home for the Queen’s rowbarge, Gloriana, a 90-foot-long (27m) barge, privately commissioned as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II for her 2012 Diamond Jubilee.

Housed in an architecturally-designed boathouse and exhibition space that makes use of the existing jetty, complete with a lifting mechanism that allows the rowbarge to be returned to the water, Gloriana extends the borough’s strong royal and naval maritime history by creating another heritage link just a short walk along the Thames path from the Maritime Museum and Cutty Sark.
