Design for Greenwich's Millennium Square gets go-ahead

A landmark piazza that will include a variety of exciting landscaping features has received planning permission.

The design for the Millennium Square is the latest step in the £5 billion transformation of the Greenwich Peninsula and Dome, in London. The landscaping features of the square will include high-quality granite paving, animated with lights and concentric patterns reflecting the curvature of the Dome structure. Water features including illuminated water pop-jets will provide movement and enliven the spaces. A substantial amount of tree planting will also take place. The director of developer Meridian Delta, Bert Martin, said: “Our objective is to create a contemporary space that acknowledges its unique setting and the dramatic presence of the Dome, as well as the historic context of Greenwich. “The Millennium Square will be an area in which residents, workers and visitors alike will feel welcome and which we hope in time will take its place alongside the great squares of London.”
