Khan eyes rapid decision on Goodsyard rejig

Bishopsgate Goodsyard (1)

Mayor of London looks to summer 2019 determination for radically revised Shoreditch plans

Developers Hammerson and Ballymore could get their reworked Bishopsgate Goodsyard proposals approved by London mayor Sadiq Khan in a matter of months – even though designs have yet to be formally lodged for planning.

The firms last week unveiled revised proposals for the 4.7ha site in east London created by FaulknerBrowns, Buckley Gray Yeoman, Chris Dyson and Spacehub. Earlier proposals featuring PLP Architecture residential towers of up to 46 storeys were ditched in 2016 and the practice walked away from the project.

The latest incarnation of the proposals includes 130,000sq m of offices along with 16,250sq m of retail space and a 300-bed hotel. A park is also planned for the top of the grade II-listed Braithwaite Viaduct.
