Stockwool has won planning for a £10 million Olympic legacy project in Hackney Wick, East London
The scheme for M&D Silk Properties is set to transform an industrial site in to a mixed-use development with homes and artists studios.
The project forms part of the London Legacy Development Corporation’s masterplan for Hackney Wick.
A new four-storey building will enclose the site’s central courtyard and includes 44 mixed-tenure one to three-bedroom flats, while an existing building on the site will be reatined as a heritage asset. Its original trusses will be exposed and internal mezzanines added to convert it into a space for local artists.
John Woolstencroft, partner at Stockwool said: ‘This scheme represents a cornerstone of the wider regeneration of the Wick. It will preserve and enhance historic buildings and contribute to the vitality and urban quality of this new emerging neighbourhood.’
The project is expected to start on site in 2017 and is set to complete in 2018.
