LLDC GREEN LIGHT FOR STOCKWOOL’S £10M HACKNEY WICK REGENERATION

Wallis Road Hackney Wick

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) has given the green light to a £10m regeneration scheme in Hackney Wick. Designed by Stockwool for M&D Silk Properties, the scheme will transform a light industrial site into a vibrant mixed-use development providing new homes and significant employment space.

One of the existing buildings will be retained as a heritage asset, with the original trusses exposed and internal mezzanines added as part of a sympathetic restoration. This block will house artist studios and a new courtyard will provide further workspace.

The scheme forms part of the LLDC’s masterplan for the regeneration of Hackney Wick. A new four-storey building encloses the central yard, providing additional employment space as well as 44 new mixed-tenure homes with one to three bedrooms. The architectural treatment takes its cue from the context through a limited palette of materials: brick, concrete and steel feature heavily to create an industrial vernacular.

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.”

Construction is expected to start in early 2017, with completion due in the spring of 2018.
