Buckley Gray Yeoman has revealed these plans for this new 73,000m² office scheme in Shoreditch, east London - part of Hammerson’s controversial masterplan for Bishopsgate Goodsyard
Straddling the London Overground Line and Shoreditch High Street Station, the 15-storey development at the corner of Shoreditch High Street and Bethnal Green Road includes shops and workshop space for start-up businesses.
Objectors have attacked the wider, high-rise proposals which aim to create 1,500 homes in towers of up to 48 storeys, branding it a ‘gross overdevelopment’ which would cause ‘substantial harm’ to the setting of listed buildings and conservation areas’.
In February the developer admitted it had reviewed the feedback and that there was likely to be ‘some amendments made to the overall scheme following these discussions’.
Although sources claim the height of the residential scheme by PLP may be shrunk, revised designs have yet to be published.
