BuckleyGrayYeoman has the go-head for a 110-home, mixed-used scheme in Hackney Wick – the latest in a series of residential-led projects approved in the Olympic fringe
Sitting at the south-western gateway to Fish Island between Dace Road, Monier Road and Smeed Road, the four-block proposal will also provide 6,300m² of commercial and light industrial space arranged around a central courtyard.
The project, which is backed by the Aitch Group, was waved through by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) and will replace a number of outdated light industrial sheds.
The scheme features three brick-built apartment blocks with ground-floor commercial use inspired by the converted warehouses typical of the area.
A new steel and glass office building (Block A) will also be built on the corner of Dace Road and Monier Road at the entrance to the up-and-coming east London artistic quarter.
BuckleyGrayYeoman director Matt Yeoman said: ‘Hackney Wick is one of London’s most interesting and evolving neighbourhoods and is home to a diverse collection of SME businesses: factories, maker spaces and warehouses, as well as cultural venues like galleries and theatres. The area can rightly claim to be a hotspot for the entrepreneurial maker culture that many are suggesting provides a model for our future economy.’
