Planning permission granted for Fish Island Village
1 December 2016
The London Legacy Development Corporation has granted planning permission to Peabody to provide hundreds of new homes and commercial space at Fish Island Village, and works have now started on site.
Planning consent has been granted for:
- 408 new homes across 13 buildings designed by Haworth Tompkins Architects, including a range of one, two, three and four bedroom homes as well as communal areas and public squares.
- 16 new homes in Block A (Lofthouse Square) designed by Lyndon Goode Architects. The ground floor and mezzanine level will provide a café managed by social enterprise the Trampery.
About Fish Island Village
With buildings designed by Haworth Tompkins, Lyndon Goode and Pitman Tozer Architects, and high-quality landscaping by Farrer Huxley Associates, Fish Island Village will provide 580 homes to rent and buy.
The scheme also includes 5,300 square metres of workspace, of which 4,500 square metres will be operated by The Trampery, a London-based social enterprise that designs and operates spaces to drive entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation.
The buildings are arranged to form new courtyards, whilst overlooking the canal, streets, a public square or garden, informing a series of building types and in line with the materials of the surrounding warehouses.
The mixed tenure accommodation includes:
- flats, maisonettes and wheelchair accessible homes of one, two, three and four bedrooms.
- all accommodation will have either street or canal side entrances, which are shared in the case of the flats, or directly off the street for the ground floor maisonettes.
Fish Island Village is part of an ambitious plan to revive this site in East London and to engage the vibrant artistic community while creating much needed homes and affordable workspaces to help build on the thriving creative industries at Fish Island.
Vanessa Coetzee, Senior Development Manager at Peabody said:
“With the combined expertise of our design team, Fish Island Village will add to the unique quality and distinct character of the area, providing high-quality new homes, great open spaces, and new business opportunities for residents, visitors and workers.”
Fish Island Village, Hackney Wick: A new way of living (and working)
2 March 2016
A new live/work facility in Hackney Wick for London’s creative and technology entrepreneurs
London is one of the world’s most desirable destinations to start and grow a business.
However, the rapidly rising costs of housing and office space pose a serious challenge for new entrepreneurs seeking to base themselves in the city. If rents continue to rise at current rates, there is a risk that London’s thriving startup and creative ecosystem will cease to exist.
That would be a disaster for London’s long-term economy and culture.
Peabody and The Trampery are setting out to address this challenge with a new kind of integrated development that offers entrepreneurs:
- a place to live
- a place to base their business
- access to shared facilities
- support to grow their business
The project is being developed on a six-acre site in Hackney Wick, East London, under the name Fish Island Village.
