Greenwich Millennium Village, the first of the Government’s Millennium Communities, lies at the southern end of the 300 acre Greenwich Peninsula and will comprise of more than 2,700 homes and commercial space. Part of the remarkable Thames Gateway regeneration project, GMV is an ambitious mixed-use development, where innovation and efficiency are fundamental.
Not only is GMV part of the largest regeneration project of its kind to be undertaken in London, it is a beautiful and practical place to live. With Canary Wharf just one stop away on the Jubilee Line, this flourishing riverside community offers excellent transport connections, an Ecology Park, school, health centre, open spaces, manmade lakes within walking distance of every home and is close to the O2 entertainment venue which features concerts, cinemas, bars and restaurants.
GMV covers 72 acres of the Peninsula, and is grouped into communities arranged around a village green and newly created lake. Green corridors connect the Village to the River Thames and the rest of the Greenwich Peninsula.
GMV is at the centre of Greenwich Peninsula’s emerging business, education, commercial and leisure districts, yet also enjoys the attractions of historical Greenwich and some of London’s most beautiful walks and open spaces.
GMV has the unique benefit of its own parkland, including the thriving Ecology Park, and has easy access to the landscaped Central Park running the length of the Peninsula.

“I had managed to save a deposit slightly over 10% of the total value of my apartment, and used the full 40% equity loan on offer through Help to Buy London. This has resulted in my mortgage repayments being less than the flat that I had rented in Parsons Green, which is an incredible position to be in. I have already recommended the Help to Buy scheme to a friend, who is just about to complete on an apartment at GMV too.”
