bptw planning have successfully secured planning approval for the first ever international cruise liner terminal in London. Working on behalf of Westcourt and Barratt, the development will be located on the northern part of the wider Enderby Wharf site which is known as Enderby Place. The scheme will include an international cruise liner terminal to accommodate cruise liners up to 820ft long, enabling longer overnight visits at Greenwich. In addition three slender residential towers of up to 31 storeys will provide 447 new homes
The scheme was designed by Manser Practice, with bptw leading the planning. The committee recognised the enormous economic benefits the first international cruise port in London would bring to the tourism in Greenwich and the city. London’s Deputy Mayor for Planning, Sir Edward Lister, has declared his support for the scheme saying, “It will provide a major boost to tourism, benefit the local economy and further contribute to London’s status as a world leading city.”
Retail and training facilities will also be included as well as extensive areas of public realm and open space.
