Proposals to create 14,000 sq meters of development in Shoreditch over an old car park opposite the Tea Building, beloved of street artists and fashion shoots,have been submitted to the Hackney Council.

The redevelopment project has been designed by the architect Ellis Miller and included in the project are 16 new retail stores, nine cafés and restaurants, loft-style offices, eight new homes and a hotel, surrounded by the aspirational stores that typify the streets and culture of Shoreditch. This is the biggest project in the area since the completion of the new Spitalfields Market in 2005.The site has been owned by private owners since 1970’s, who have struggled to preserve the unique style of the buildings.

Here is the view of one of the owners Dominic White: “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. We are dedicated to the regeneration of this corner of Shoreditch, which will create new stores, restaurants and important jobs for local people”.

Shoreditch is already home to the world’s first pop-up mall, Boxpark, which is expected to stay in the area for the next five years, playing host to famous brands such as Boxfresh, Puma and Vans.

If the permission is granted next year, it is expected the work will begin on the site towards the end of 2014 and be completed in the middle of 2015.
