Telereal Trillium has secured a resolution to grant planning permission from the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) to redevelop Hackney TSCV, a 1.5 acre former BT depot site on Fish Island in Hackney Wick.
The proposed scheme comprises four buildings with 145 high-quality apartments, of which 50 will be affordable. In addition, the plans include 23,000 sq ft of commercial space at ground level, fronting the public realm. The development offers a number of facilities, including parking spaces and cycle storage as well as a 24-hour concierge, communal garden, balconies, and a residents’ viewing room.
Located just west of the Stratford Olympic Park and a couple hundred yards from Hackney Wick Station, residents will benefit from excellent transport links and proximity to both Central London and Stratford. The redevelopment is set to enhance the public realm around Fish Island and provide a new pedestrian route to the upgraded Hackney Wick Station. The route also reinstates a lost historic street and brings strong active street frontages around the site.
Following BT’s plans to vacate the Hackney TSCV property and relocate to another site, a detailed application was submitted by Telereal Trillium to redevelop the site. Vacant possession is expected in early Spring 2019.
The designers of the new scheme, architecture and interior design firm CJCT, undertook an extensive programme of consultation and review with the LLDC throughout the design process, resulting in a scheme that fits into the existing urban fabric and reflects the historical heritage of the area.
Steve Akeju, Senior Development Manager at Telereal Trillium said: “Following the widespread regeneration kick-started by the 2012 Olympics, Hackney has become a very popular area for tech and creative industries as well as new homebuyers. We are delighted to move forward with our plans which will help create new opportunities and offer much-needed housing to the area.”
