Celebration as GMV Reaches New Heights
Greenwich Millennium Village has hit an important construction milestone, reaching its highest point on the Latimer Apartments, part of the latest phase, consisting of houses and apartments.
The celebration was marked with a traditional Topping-Out ceremony with senior representatives from Countryside, Taylor Wimpey, the Greater London Authority and Bennett Construction on Thursday 5th October 2017, at the site on the Greenwich Peninsula.
Greenwich Millennium Village is one of the most exciting and innovative new residential neighbourhoods in Europe. Since the first residents moved in more than fifteen years ago, it has evolved into a thriving and established community with an array of amenities and facilities on its doorstep. GMV is surrounded by a huge amount of open green space, including an on-site four-acre ecology park with two lakes, the large Southern Park and a new eco play area. Building on the existing community facilities, the new phase has been configured to feel like a traditional village setting, where residents can enjoy tree-lined streets and a brand new Village Square.
Peter Willis, Director of GMV Limited, comments: “We are delighted to be celebrating this major milestone in the delivery of Greenwich Millennium Village. Holding a traditional Topping-Out ceremony is symbolic in the timeline of the development and a celebration of the hard work and commitment that has got us to this stage. The latest release features the first houses to be available at GMV and the forming of a new Village Square, making this phase extremely exciting. Greenwich Millennium Village has matured into a desirable neighbourhood and a vibrant place to live, work and socialize.”
The exciting new phase of homes has recently launched, featuring a range of contemporary three-bedroom Courtyard Houses, and four-bedroom Townhouses; the first houses to be available at GMV. These well located homes offer house-hunters the opportunity to purchase a family property in a vibrant London location with easy access to a range of on-site facilities, including an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ Primary School.
Homes in the ‘Townhouse and Courtyard Collection’ have been designed with modern day family life in mind. Townhouses are elegantly designed over three floors, offering a contemporary twist on classic city living, including a garden and private terrace which is accessed from the master bedroom. The Courtyard House design provides three-bedrooms, an open plan kitchen/living/dining area and access to a courtyard patio area. Further outdoor space is provided by a large first floor terrace, accessed via the master bedroom.
Residents at Greenwich Millennium Village can take advantage of a huge amount of on-site amenities and green open space. The existing village square features a health centre, hairdressers, Ayurveda spa and shops including a pharmacy and dry cleaners, all of which contributes to the strong, close-knit community feel of the development. There is also a 24-hour a day on site concierge service which can accept packages and hold keys on behalf of residents.
For commuters, GMV is just one stop away from Canary Wharf and nine minutes from Westfield Shopping Centre via the Jubilee Line from North Greenwich Underground Station, which also benefits from night tube services. There is an excellent range of amenities within close proximity of the development including The O2 with its diverse mix of restaurants, cafes and entertainment opportunities. Thames Clippers also provide frequent services from North Greenwich Pier, while the Emirates Air Line cable car connects quickly and easily to the Royal Docks on the opposite side of the Thames.
