For the many people (including myself) who have been wondering what the bloomin’ heck’s been going on at Greenwich Pier, a small update. Not sure if I’m supposed to reveal where I got this so I won’t.
Apparently the project’s been on hold pending financial agreements, tied to lettings within the buildings themselves. These were resolved back in the summer, and building work’s been going on – but the reason we’ve not been seeing anything is because it’s mainly been underground. The steel frame should be on site pretty much any day now when things will really start to hot-up. The shell is due to be completed in the summer. So however much we may like or dislike the planned building, something that’s finished and in use can only be better than a building site – and hopefully we’ll be getting the pier back – at least in some form – soonish.
