Latest update on The Movement

At the recent residents’ liaison meeting, we heard that Willmott Dixon’s Marketing Suite for the new homes on the site will open on 5th September with 50 apartments due to be handed over before Christmas. There will be a range of show homes to view.

Construction has now started on the extension to Greenwich West Community Centre and business start-up units. Cllr Chris Roberts, Leader of Greenwich Council, came down to help us celebrate this start on site.

The Greenwich Enterprise Board (GEB) will purchase, fit out and manage the incubator units. To find out more about leasing opportunities, please check the GEB’s website (geb.co.uk). Cathedral will begin looking for tenants for the ground floor commercial properties in the coming weeks.

The MVMNT Café will be enjoying its final weeks before closing up shop by the end of May to make way for the business hotel. It will find a new home in Brighton. Before it goes, more events will take place to make the most of Spring, now that it’s finally arrived!

The next meeting of the Residents’ Liaison Group is scheduled for Tuesday, 16th July 2013 at Devonport House, from 6.30pm. Please do come along, meet the team and find out what’s new.
