The latest news…

Construction on site.

In 2014 we are nearing completion of The Movement development. Work has started on the Travelodge Hotel by the contractor Anglo Holt.

In May 2013, construction was started when the Leader of Greenwich Council and Director of Cathedral Group, Richard Upton visited the site for an official opening.

The very popular MVMNT cafe has sadly left Greenwich to make way for further construction.

The residential apartments provided as part of the redevelopment are now available. www.primeplacegreenwich.com.

After it was dismantled, The MVMNT café’s designer Morag Myerscough’s took The Movement Café’s distinctive stools to a children’s hospital, and everything that couldn’t be used, or moved, was recycled by GCDA in the local area.  The area that was occupied by The Movement Café has now joined the rest of the site, which is currently being developed to create a vibrant new community and gateway for the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

The MVMNT Cafe was very popular among Greenwich residents and regular commuters passing by to access the DLR from Greenwich station. It was also featured on instagram, Facebook and websites throughout the world and its innovative design has been widely recognised for;

Design Week award for Hospitality and Workplace Interiors

Highly commended by AJ Small Projects

Also shortlisted for;

New London Award – Temporary

Restaurant & Bar Design Awards – Pop Up

World Interiors News Annual Awards – Restaurant
