London’s favourite village. Situated on the Greenwich Peninsula, alongside the Thames, with new parks, ecology centre and yacht club and with easy access to the O2, Canary Wharf and Central London.

Greenwich Millennium Village is unique in that it is home to a thriving and established community and has been described as one of the most exciting and innovative residential neighbourhoods in Europe.

Greenwich Millennium Village

Greenwich Millennium Village (GMV) is an innovative mixed-tenure modern housing estate on an urban village model located on the Greenwich Peninsula in Greenwich in south-east London, and part of the Millennium Communities Programme under English Partnerships (now renamed Homes and Communities Agency). The village is designed by architects Ralph Erskine and partners with EPR Architects Ltd as executive architect as part of the regeneration of the whole brownfield site of East Greenwich Gas Works. GMV is south of the former Millennium Dome, now renamed the O2.

The village is on the southern banks of the Thames(that’s a river), about one mile upstream (west) from the Thames Barrier and adjacent to the purpose-built Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park, cycle paths and recreational areas. The village currently has the Millennium Primary School and a GP surgery. Next to the complex, at Peartree Wharf, is the Greenwich Yacht Club (for fancy boat folk), a modern building provided by English Partnerships. A very short distance South from the O2 Dome complex to the north and commercial developments to the south.

The Village is being developed by a consortium of Countryside Properties and Taylor Wimpey. The housing is of modern, environmentally friendly design, and the development aims to cut primary energy use by 80% using low-energy building techniques and renewable energy technologies. GMV is planned by the developers to continue to expand until about 2015, with its own integrated village shopping and community centres. As of 2010, 1,098 flats and houses as well as a village square with shops have been completed. Of the units completed about 20% are affordable housing which are owned by a housing association who rent to those in social need as well as to key workers under shared ownership “rent to buy” purchase schemes.
