Plans submitted for Shoreditch Village retail scheme

Plans have been submitted to Hackney Council for a new 150,000 sq ft retail and mixed use development in London’s Shoreditch.

If plans are approved, the proposed 'Shoreditch Village' project will be the first retail permanent regeneration project in the area since the completion of new Spitalfields Market in 2005.

The vision of long-term private owners who have owned the site since the 1970s, the scheme will be include a covered market, retail units, restaurants, cafes, offices and a hotel, as well as eight new homes.

Situated on a site underneath the railway viaduct opposite Shoreditch High Street station, the scheme has been designed by architects Ellis Miller and will preserve listed buildings on the site.  

The owners said that they are targeting more unusual brands and sub-brands for the development in line with the "edgy aspirational stores that typify the streets and culture of Shoreditch".  

Dominic White of the family owners, explained: "This project encapsulates Shoreditch’s unique character, providing a new destination for visitors and local residents alike to move to, work, shop, eat or simply enjoy.  

"An extension of the vibrant area around BoxPark, Shoreditch House, the Albion and Boundary. Shoreditch Village is right in the heart of London’s creative district.

"The fragmented nature of property ownership in Shoreditch adds to its’ unique character, and our scheme will reflect the progressive and highly eclectic mix of the area."

The scheme will also include 20,000 sq ft of loft style offices over the top three floors, tailored to attract different sized occupiers from the creative and technology sectors. 

If planning permission is granted, construction work could begin towards the end of 2014 with the scheme set for completion by mid-2015.
