Architects add 200 homes - but still fall short of planners’ demands
Architects working on the Bishopsgate Goodsyard scheme in east London have gone back to the drawing board to squeeze in more flats after planners raised concerns that the latest proposals weren’t doing enough to tackle the housing crisis.
An original PLP Architecture-designed scheme had envisaged more than 1,300 homes on the 4.4ha site in Shoreditch, but that proposal was scrapped three years ago, at which point PLP walked away.
A new revised development by FaulknerBrowns, Buckley Gray Yeoman, Chris Dyson and Spacehub for developers Hammerson and Ballymore will now contain 450 flats, up from 250 in the proposals consulted on last year, but well under the 1,356 units set out in the original plan.
