Quintain has been involved with creating exceptional neighbourhoods in London for many years, as can be seen by our involvement in the Greenwich Peninsular development.

Following a land swap in 1999, we acquired 18.5 acres of land on the opposite bank of the River Thames to Canary Wharf, next to what was then the Millennium Dome, now The O2. This land constituted a 150 acre site known as Greenwich Peninsula.

On 18 June 2012, Quintain established a new joint venture with Knight Dragon, acting as development and project managers for Greenwich Peninsula Regeneration Limited (GPRL) the JV holding company. Quintain’s share in GPRL was 40%, which was disposed of in November 2013 for £186 million to Knight Dragon.

Our achievements at Greenwich Peninsula include:

  • In 2004, secured planning permission for a 14m sq ft mixed use Masterplan across a 150 acre site
  • Facilitated AEG’s entry into the London market, converting the Millennium Dome into the 02 entertainment venue
  • Overall 10,000 homes consented, together with office retail and leisure use
  • Ravensbourne College (a 150,000 sq ft site), 440,000 sq ft of office buildings; 14 Pier Walk and 6 Mitre Passage and a 280 room student block were all built
  • Quintain and GLA land ownerships ensured a fast track delivery of the complex project to meet the deadline of opening for London 2012 Olympics
  • The joint venture succeeded in driving forward the development and achieved a number of significant milestones, including:
    • Resolution to grant outline planning permission for 1,683 homes and two hotels at Peninsula Quays
    • Detailed planning consent granted for the first phase of residential development. This first phase comprised of 506 units in three buildings at Peninsula Riverside, and began construction in July 2013.
