Buckley Gray Yeoman unveils more offices for Bishopsgate

  • Comment

Buckley Gray Yeoman has revealed plans for a second major office scheme within Hammerson’s controversial masterplan for the former Bishopsgate Goodsyard in Shoreditch, east London

Described as a ‘truly modern warehouse’ development, the ‘trussed’ proposals for the so-called plot K site spans a mainline railway cutting (see attached phasing plan). Only a quarter of the building in Quaker Street will sit on the ground.

The proposed office block is aimed at tenants from the tech community and offers large floorplates which can be sub-divided into small incubator units. The lower levels of the building will be clad in brick to match the historic arches nearby, with the upper floors resembling a ‘crittall box’ of glass and steelwork.

Last month the AJ120 practice also revealed plans for a 15-storey, 73,000m² office scheme on plots A and B to the north of this latest scheme.

Straddling the London Overground Line and Shoreditch High Street Station, that project will replace the existing BoxPark opposite the Tea Building.

Objectors have attacked the wider, high-rise proposals which aim to create more than 1,300 homes in towers of up to 46 storeys, branding it a ‘gross over-development’ which would cause ‘substantial harm’ to the setting of listed buildings and conservation areas’.

A revised scheme for the Goodsyard, featuring lower towers and ‘less glass’, were revealed earlier today (17 June).
