Commodore’s Quarter Tops Out
Greenwich Millennium Village (GMV), a joint venture between Countryside and Taylor Wimpey in association with the Mayor of London, held a “topping out” ceremony on-site to mark the completion of the structures in Commodore’s Quarter.
In total, 116 one-to-three bedroom apartments and 20 three-and-four bedroom houses are being delivered as part of the new phase in GMV’s development.
Among the guests who were in attendance to celebrate this key milestone were senior representatives from Countryside, Taylor Wimpey and the Greater London Authority, as well as the Royal Borough of Greenwich, One Housing Group and the wider consulting team.
Upon arrival, the guests were received at the marketing suite in the Village Square, where an overview of the GMV masterplan and the latest phase was provided. The attendees then made their way to the roof of the Carrick apartment building, where the last batch of concrete was poured.
Chris Bladon, Director of Greenwich Millennium Village, commented: “The topping out of Commodore’s Quarter represents a major milestone for Greenwich Millennium Village, which has brought something truly unique to London - a village feel and real sense of community. Living here is more than just about owning a stylish, contemporary home with everything you need nearby. It’s about being a part of a small, close-knit community, while still having the chance to enjoy the very best of London life. We are very proud of how works is progressing with Commodore’s Quarter and look forward to completing the new homes, commercial units and village square”.
The internal fit out of the buildings within Commodore’s Quarter will be progressed throughout next year, with the first residents moving in during September 2020.
Commodore’s Quarter comprises 6 apartment buildings and 20 houses. These superior, brilliantly designed homes are clustered around a brand new village square with play area and space for retail.
GMV itself has been described as one of Europe’s most vibrant, new residential neighbourhoods. The development boasts signature architecture, within a sustainable development, landscaped by nature. Residents can enjoy relaxed, waterside living with excellent travel connections, world class entertainment nearby and all of the buzz of the UK’s capital on their doorstep. Once complete, GMV will deliver 3,000 new homes.

The much-anticipated new phase of homes at Greenwich Millennium Village has now launched, reports Countryside.
Iverna Quay offers a stylish collection of contemporary apartments, maisonettes and überhaus™ exclusively situated behind the Greenwich Yacht Club with some apartments overlooking the River Thames.
Iverna Quay is a modern ten-storey building with a striking exterior that complements its waterside setting and the surrounding architecture of the rest of the development. To reflect the area’s nautical heritage, the name Iverna comes from the beached Thames sailing barge that was used as the original clubhouse for the Greenwich Yacht Club, when it was founded in 1908. The apartments look out over the sailing boats of the yacht club and many of the homes have riverside views.
Chris Bladon, a Director of GMV Limited comments: “Greenwich Millennium Village has matured into a desirable neighbourhood with a reputation for high quality homes in a sustainable setting. Iverna Quay will not only benefit from village living, but is also right on the banks of the River Thames. Given the success of earlier phases of the development we are expecting strong demand for the homes at Iverna Quay and perspective buyers are urged to enquire soon to avoid disappointment.”
All homes at Iverna Quay have their own private outdoor space in the form of a balcony, some of which run the entire length of the property, while the ground floor maisonettes have an enclosed front garden. Interiors offer flexible, light-filled accommodation with open plan living spaces and full height glazing. The upper floor überhaus™ are split over two floors and enjoy sweeping river views. The überhauses offer spacious living accommodation and residents benefit from the services of an on-site concierge.
The high quality interior specification includes individually designed contemporary style kitchens with stone grey gloss base and wall units and a full range of quality integrated appliances. The chic contemporary décor features luxury tiled and oak flooring, while ample storage is incorporated with white oak fitted wardrobes in the master and some second bedrooms. A range of environmentally conscious features makes the homes highly energy efficient, such as the high performance communal heating system and superior levels of insulation.
Prices at Iverna Quay start from £422,500 for a one bedroom. For further information about Greenwich Millennium Village, visit www.gmv.london.

A brand new large scale 3,480sqm² (37,458 sq ft) children’s eco play park was opened at Greenwich Millennium Village last week, reports Countryside Properties.
The new play area enhances the Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park, which is home to many different species of wildlife, and gives the residents of the village the opportunity for adventure and activity.
Comprising a log walk, cross-beam balance trail, climbing tower, mast activity net, embankment slide, a living willow tunnel, timber team swing and two insect hotels, the entire Eco Park has been constructed using natural and reclaimed materials, providing a place for pollinators and pest controllers to nest and shelter. The materials used include timber, willow, York stone, and bark mulch. The planting of wildflowers and new trees also complements the existing shrubbery and mature trees.
Speaking on behalf of the joint venture partners behind the development, Countryside and Taylor Wimpey, Chris Bladon, Managing Director of Countryside comments: “Greenwich Millennium Village is an innovative village within the city, providing not only a home for its residents but also a community to be a part of. Creating a safe and fun area for the young residents and also the public to play has always been a key part of our plans, so we are delighted that the eco play park is now open to everyone. Designed as an extension to the fantastic Ecology Park, this will be the perfect playground to encourage children to come outside and explore their new environment.”
Simon Pile, Estates Manager South at the Land Trust, comments: “As a charity focused entirely on the importance of green open spaces for community benefit, we are delighted to see the addition of this natural play area to Southern Park and look forward to it being well used and enjoyed by the local community.”Situated on the bank of the Thames, Greenwich Millennium Village is one of the most exciting and innovative residential neighbourhoods in Europe and is already home to a thriving and established community. It is also only a short walk from the O2 and its abundance of restaurants and bars.
Locally there is an extensive range of facilities too, including The Millennium Primary School and a nursery for children up to age 4 – ‘Millennium Minis’, as well as a health centre, local retail park and an IMAX Cinema.
