Construction work has begun on Stockwool’s £4.5 million regeneration of a warehouse in Bethnal Green, East London
The 1,716m2 scheme in Vyner Street will redevelop the warehouse into 23 new homes and 410m2 of flexible office space.
The development features two blocks of four and five storeys with office space on the ground floor and new apartments above.
Sited in the Regents Canal Conservation Area the building’s elevations reflect the surrounding Georgian terraces while a combination of dark and grey brick, copper rainscreen and timber cladding creates a modern finish.
Jamie Macarthur, planning manager at Aitch Group said: ‘Yet again Aitch Group are at the forefront of regenerating a key part of London’s East End. Set on the edge of the Regents Canal Conservation Area, the proposals are of high architectural and urban design quality. Aitch Group look forward to delivering another exciting scheme while contributing to the much needed housing supply in London.’
The scheme is set to complete in March 2017.
