Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios' social housing experiment dropped

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBS) has lost its battle to build the potentially groundbreaking £53 million Mildmay Urban Village in Shoreditch, east London.

The client, consortium Mildmay Urban Village Partners, has decided not to continue an appeal against last November's refusal by Tower Hamlets Council to allow the huge edge-of-city scheme, hailed as a social experiment in 'supportive housing'.

Led by homeless charity Crisis UK, the Genesis Housing Group and English Partnerships, the consortium had wanted to build a massive 400-home social and private development, featuring a controversial 23-storey tower which would have been the first of its kind in the UK.
