Heritage protection jeopardises plan to replace weavers’ tenement in Shoreditch
Campaigners fighting to prevent the demolition and redevelopment of a Georgian terraced house in a trendy part of east London have won a crucial victory after Historic England listed the building at grade II.
Architect p-ad created plans to redevelop No 3 Club Row in Shoreditch and a building to the rear in Whitby Street with a new five-storey building with three flats and commercial space at its ground floor and basement level.
Documents supporting the proposals said the existing building, which dates back to the mid-1760s, was in a poor state of repair, had “little architectural merit” and did not contribute to the appearance of the area “partly due to the emergence of ever-larger buildings surrounding it”.
