Knight Dragon Unveils New Greenwich Peninsula Landmark by Santiago Calatrava
Development company Knight Dragon unveils new landmark at the heart of its transformation of Greenwich Peninsula – the first building in the UK to be designed by international architect Santiago Calatrava. £1 billion worth, the new project takes 1.4 million sq ft, including a new tube and bus station, theatre, cinema and performance venue, bars, shops and a wellbeing hub. Above this will rise three towers of workspaces, apartments and hotels, all connected to the Thames by a stunning new land bridge.
It is an honour to be designing such a piece of the fabric of London, a city I love. In designing this scheme, I have been inspired by London’s rich architectural heritage and the very special geography of the Peninsula. It will be a project that reflects both this and the ambition of Knight Dragon for Greenwich Peninsula. – Santiago Calatrava
