Developers set to reveal new Bishopsgate Goodsyard plans

Bishopsgate Goodsyard proposals

Hammerson and Ballymore to begin consulting on downsized scheme next week

A reworked version of proposals to redevelop east London’s Bishopsgate Goodsyard site is set to go out to consultation next week, project developers Hammerson and Ballymore have announced.

Plans to regenerate the 4.4ha site in Shoreditch with a 1,300 home scheme featuring PLP Architecture towers of up to 46 storeys bit the dust in 2016, and the practice subsequently walked away from the project.

BD understands that the new proposals – worked up by surviving design-team members FaulknerBrowns, Buckley Grey Yeoman, Chris Dyson and Spacehub – will be lower and the tallest building no more than 30 storeys. The move reacts to local oppositon that the earlier proposals faced, and reflects a shift towards commercial uses for the site, part of which is currently occupied by the Box Park development.
