Exciting news for the thriving Shoreditch community and surrounding areas, the arrival of Tramshed, Mark Hix’s newest business endeavour.

Over the years this architecturally stunning building has benefited from various uses including pop up exhibitions, galleries and private functions despite originally being designed by Vincent Harris in 1905 as an electricity generating facility for the Tramway System.  It now offers not only the opportunity to consume first-class food, it enables the trendy, creative residents and those who commute to the area the additional advantage of viewing some of the new and upcoming pieces of art in the ‘Cock ‘n’ Bull’ gallery; located in the basement of this unique structure.  Keeping with the artistic, vibrant concept now renowned within the area, Hix has introduced his increasingly popular restaurant chain to the heart of Shoreditch.  Hix himself has currently lived on Great Eastern Street, moments from the restaurant itself, for some ten years now and had an insatiable desire to ‘create something that will work in harmony with the local community’.

Shoreditch and the East Central London area in general has become a highly desirable location for many new or established businesses who want to ‘set-up shop’.  Over the years the area has prospered vastly in terms of commercial and residential sales and lettings, becoming an alluring place for both companies and individuals.  London seems to be isolated from the rest of the UK in terms of residential sales; according to the trusted property portal ‘Findaproperty.com’, the price of a property in London is estimated at £477,431 on average showing a considerable difference from the UK average of £221,387 as of March 2012.  In fact, it is more than twice as much!

Hix’s story shows how even the residents of the area want to be involved in ensuring the area continues to flourish.
