Today we celebrated the opening of The Movement, our mixed-use regeneration scheme in Greenwich town centre. We marked the occasion with a street party and ribbon cutting ceremony, attended by over 500 people including members of Greenwich council, local residents, students and our valued project delivery partners.
At the launch event we unveiled a brand new piece of public artwork. A poem called “Shipping Good” which was written about Greenwich specifically for our project by official Olympic poet Lemn Sissay, has been designed and carved into the stone of the pavement of Lovibond Lane, the public street that runs through the heart of our project.
We were lucky enough to have Lemn himself perform the poem to the gathered crowds as well as the Leader of the Council, Denise Hyland who talked about the positive impact that The Movement has had in transforming an important gateway site in Greenwich into a lively, high quality mixed-use community.
We have a long history of partnership with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, developing schemes that drive economic regeneration, deliver much needed housing and create sustainable employment opportunities.
