THE CURRENT SITEIntroduction
In 2000 Berkeley Homes was appointed as the successful developer and took on the responsibility to deliver a new urban quarter with historic buildings very much at its heart. It is these buildings that give Royal Arsenal Riverside its strong sense of place. Royal Arsenal Riverside today includes 20 Listed Buildings, one at Grade I – The Royal Brass Foundry – three at Grade II* - The Grand Store, The Board Room and The Dial Arch – and the rest at Grade II.
Berkeley has a number of these buildings in its care and, working in partnership with Historic England and the Royal Borough of Greenwich, has successfully regenerated the majority of them through sensitive conservation and repair and conversion to new uses including residential, a public house and restaurant, and other commercial uses alongside high quality new buildings.
