Ashburnham 3 in Greenwich, South East London, was originally constructed as Binnie Court, a care home, in the early 1970s and was significantly remodelled, extended and converted to student accommodation by Mount Anvil in 1993. The building, situated in the heart of Greenwich, currently offers 118 single study bedrooms for students and is occupied on a long lease by the University of Greenwich.
We completed the acquisition of Binnie Court at the end of June 2007 from the London and Quadrant Housing Trust and has been managing the student accommodation on behalf of the tenants, the University of Greenwich.
In December 2008 we secured consent to develop the site into a beautiful new £25m student village. The Planning Committee at London Borough of Greenwich unanimously approved the plans of our architects, Fraser Brown MacKenna, which involve the demolition of the existing building and its replacement with a high quality, modern and purpose built development of 200 student bedrooms.
The scheme will be the most sustainable student accommodation in Greenwich, utilising various sustainable technologies including a biomass boiler and green roofs to provide 20% of the site’s energy from renewable sources.Back to top Back to home page
