Shoreditch could be getting a mega makeover in 2014
Grand plans to redevelop Shoreditch market have been submitted for consideration and could see redevelopment work start as early as next year.
If approved, the 150,000 sq ft mixed-use space would replace an old car park in an area which has previously been hard to develop because of a large concrete London Overground viaduct that dissects the space. However, developers are convinced they can “enhance the area.”
Architecture firm Ellis Miller heading the redesign process has pledged to transform the area into “one of London’s key destinations with a vibrant mix of public, retail, cafes, restaurants, residential and commercial space.”
The development proposal, named “Shoreditch Village” is being headed by London veteran property developer Dominic White whose family purchased the site in the 1970s.
Architects have worked closely with local councils which are said to be in full support of the project because of its allotment of more green and community space.
Looks like we should all keep our eyes on Shoreditch in 2014!
