The site is located in the Royal Borough of Greenwich in south east London on the site of the former Greenwich Police Station.

Located within the West Greenwich Conservation Area, the site is in close proximity to various listed buildings, the most prominent being the former Town Hall complex directly opposite the site, which is Grade II listed.

The architectural language of the new building draws on that of the adjacent listed Former Greenwich Town Hall. This establishes a relationship to define the junction and the keys views around the junction.

From the outset the design team sought to engage with relevant interest groups and community stakeholders and various discussions were held with Historic England, the Greenwich Society, as well as the Conservation Officer for the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Planning permission was granted in October 2019 and is now under construction.
