PLP and FaulknerBrowns joins Bishopsgate team

  • Comment

Terry Farrell, PLP Architecture and FaulknerBrowns Architects have been selected to take on the long-awaited overhaul of the Bishopsgate Goods Yard, east London

Chosen by joint developers Hammerson and The Ballymore Group, the practices will deliver 2,000 new homes, shops and a new park on the plot around Shoreditch High Street Overground station, which has lain empty for more than 40 years.

The developers started working with Tower Hamlets and Hackney councils on developing interim planning guidance for the former railway yard in 2008, winning planning in early 2010.

Farrell, who drew up the guidance and proposed a high-level park similar to the famous New York High Line, will continue in a masterplanning role.

PLP, is to design the first stage of the housing, while FaulknerBrowns will oversee the 18,000m2 of retail space, which will ‘integrate’ with the Grade II-listed Braithwaite viaduct.

Pre-application consultation starts this month and a planning application is expected to be submitted at the end of 2013.

The team also includes Chris Dyson Architects, DP9, WSP, Gardiner & Theobald, Hoare Lea and Peter Stewart Consultancy.
