The Royal Borough Greenwich’s Planning Committee has resolved to grant planning consent the OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture) designed Morden Wharf.

The development by U+I will deliver 1,500 new homes in 12 buildings, where 35% will be affordable. The scheme is set in more than 6 acres of high-quality public realm including a 4-acre landscaped park opening up more than 275m of Thames riverfront that includes a river beach.

The scheme also includes a significant upgrade of the Thames Path, increasing its width to 6m.

Plans include a new public square that will host seasonal events and markets laid out where the Thames Path meets Sea Witch Lane.

Underground car parking facilities means the public space will cater almost exclusively to pedestrians and cyclists.

The site will include commercial, retail and community use spaces, including smaller flexible spaces for SMEs and creative businesses.

U+I has already agreed a lease with south east London brewery, Brew By Numbers, for a new taproom and brewery to be located in an existing warehouse on the site. It will open with a Riverside Beer Festival on 10 & 11 September 2021. The warehouse sits on the site of an old pub, The Sea Witch, that was destroyed by a bomb during the Second World War.
