New Hackney Wick North South Route

Hawkins Brown, Delvendahl Martin and Studio Weave have been chosen to work on three strategic sites close to the newly refurbished Hackney Wick Overground Station, next to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The London Legacy Development Corporation selected the practices as part of a team led by Notting Hill Genesis, along with Bow Arts as consultant workspace providers and Hackney Wick-based construction partner, Engie Regeneration.

The sites are owned by the LLDC and form part of the Hackney Wick central masterplan which was granted outline planning permission in March 2019.

The LLDC’s Hackney Wick sites will provide 190 new homes and 4,500sq m of commercial space, including flexible retail and community facilities. Half the homes will be “affordable”.

Marko Neskovic, partner at Hawkins Brown, said the team relished the opportunity to ”complete LLDC’s ambitious vision for a rich mix of residential and commercial spaces around Hackney Wick station”.

Rosanna Lawes, executive director of development at the LLDC, said the appointments were a major step forward for the area.

Notting Hill Genesis was selected via the Greater London Authority’s London Development Panel framework, LDP2.

She said: “The area has a unique character with a strong creative and manufacturing  history. The  design enhances the existing conservation areas and assets that reflect this history, it  will achieve a level of architectural variety in their response to this rich context, as well as delivering exemplary performance in terms of sustainability.”
