Make's Heart of East Greenwich mixed-use development.
A pioneering zero-carbon scheme by Make Architects in Greenwich has been submitted for planning.
The Heart of East Greenwich project is on the site of the former Greenwich District Hospital and has been developed by First Base as part of the London-Wide Initiative, a scheme managed by English Partnerships to deliver more affordable homes for key workers throughout the capital.
It includes 645 homes with 50% affordable housing, a public square, library, health centre, shops and flexible workspace.
It has been designed in collaboration with engineer Arup and urban designer Lovejoy.
The development will meet its zero carbon target through on-site generation of heat and power using Biomass CHP and thermal storage, supplemented by gas boilers during peak periods.
First Base managing director Elliot Lipton said:
“We hope the Heart of East Greenwich will shape the future of sustainable developments in London.
“Following extensive consultation, we are confident that the scheme will match affordability and sustainability and act as a catalyst for ongoing regeneration in Greenwich.”
