BuckleyGrayYeoman latest to net planning for Fish Island homes

  • 1 Comment

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by the Aitch Group, was waved through by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) and will replace a number of outdated light industrial sheds.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.’

  • This is absolute nonsense.

    1. "interesting and evolving neighbourhoods" means gentrification (not always bad though)

    2. "home to a diverse collection of SME businesses: factories, maker spaces and warehouses, as well as cultural venues like galleries and theatres." Yes it was but all the spaces these people work in are either under threat and have been sold. If i ran a business and i knew my premise was worth a lot id sell it and leave also. The creative people who made these spaces what they are will not like the new environment either.

    3. "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." More nonsense, this is just architect / developer speak to sell the scheme and the houses. None of this will be left...also a model for our future economy based on squat parties??

    There's also no mention of the halal slaughter house that a lot of these schemes overlook. The smell is awful in the morning.
