The Movement in Greenwich and 387-399 Rotherhithe New Road in Bermondsey have been shortlisted in the Mixed-use Development Category at the Placemaking Awards.
The Placemaking Awards recognise and publicise projects, plans, people and organisations that are making places better. They are open to individuals and organisations in planning, regeneration, economic development, urban design, sustainable development and community development.
The Movement is the redevelopment of the former Greenwich industrial estate adjacent to the Greenwich DLR and mainline station. It will comprise 181 high quality new homes, a 104 bedroom business hotel, 358 student apartments, 7,000 sq ft of business incubator units, educational and administrative space, a health and fitness club, a convenience food store and an energy centre for the site.
387-399 Rotherhithe New Road is a mixed-use scheme, bringing together four key components which work together to create a single development that meets the needs of the community. The new scheme will include 158 new homes, the creation of two new schools, and a new community centre. It will also create in excess of 60 jobs, many for local residents.
David Cafferty, Director at HLM, said: “we are delighted to have two new projects recognised by these prestigious awards. We always strive to marry regeneration potential with the creation of the best possible places for people to live, work, play and thrive. Both schemes in Greenwich and Rotherhithe will add enormous value to the communities they are designed to serve.”
The award ceremony takes place on 28 January 2014.
