Knight Dragon and Mace celebrated the topping out of No5, the tallest building in the Upper Riverside, last Friday 18th May 2018.
At 104m high, or 30 storeys, is the tallest building in the development. The finished building will create 162 new homes.
The complete second phase of the Upper Riverside neighbourhood includes three residential buildings in total, made up of 543 apartments. The buildings are known as No3, No4 and No5 Upper Riverside.
Mace was appointed by Knight Dragon in 2017 to deliver the second phase of Upper Riverside. The buildings will have outdoor terraces and rooftop garden space and are scheduled to complete in three stages between 2019 and 2020.
Mace are also currently working with Knight Dragon to deliver the first phase of Upper Riverside, which is due to complete later in 2018. The first phase comprises two residential buildings – No1 and No2 – containing 464 apartments.
The £8.4 billion transformation of the Peninsula will, over the coming years, provide 15,720 new homes in seven new neighbourhoods, and will be home to a new design district, schools, offices, health services and public spaces, all wrapped by 1.6 miles of the River Thames.
Richard Margree, Chief Executive Officer of Knight Dragon, commented:
“This brand-new riverside neighbourhood will deliver hundreds of much-needed homes and new amenities for local residents on the Peninsula. It’s a vital part of the wider masterplan and will be the first entire neigh-bourhood to be completed, so we’re delighted to be topping out on its tallest building. We would like to con-gratulate Mace on reaching this significant milestone.”
Bob Coe, Mace’s Director for Greenwich Peninsula added:
“We have been working with Knight Dragon on Greenwich Peninsula since 2015. Since then we’ve built a very successful delivery partnership that has resulted in great progress on both phases of the Upper Riverside neighbourhood. This topping out marks the completion of the tallest element of both phases, and represents a significant milestone on the journey to overall completion of the whole programme by 2020.”
