Pitman Tozer has won planning for a mixed-use scheme at Peabody’s Fish Island site opposite the Olympic Park
The 7,020m2 scheme includes 71 mixed tenure homes alongside ground floor commercial space facing Roach Road.
This commercial space can be divided into upto seven separate units to create affordable workspaces for the creative industry.
Clad in brick, the one, two, and three-bedroom maisonettes and apartments will be directly accessible from the street.
The project forms part of Peabody’s 578-home development for the site which also includes work by Haworth Tompkins, Lyndon Goode, and Farrer Huxley Associates.
Vanessa Coetzee, senior development manager at Peabody, said: ‘After working closely with our design team to develop an exciting vision for the future of Fish Island, we’re delighted that our plans have been given the green light. By providing high-quality homes, great open spaces and business opportunities, this scheme will enhance the distinct character of the area, helping to make it a beautiful and practical place to live and work.’
Luke Tozer, director of Pitman Tozer Architects, added: ‘Monier Road is the first piece of the jigsaw of the regeneration of Fish Island. Working with Haworth Tompkins and Lyndon Goode, we are attempting to produce a development and an architecture that is in tune with its existing industrial context, yet provides a vibrant new urban quarter delivering much needed housing and affordable workspace.’
The development is part of the wider Hackney Wick masterplan which will see 5,500 new homes built as part of the 2012 Olympic Games’ legacy.
The final phase of the scheme is expected to complete in 2020.
