Located in the heart of Hackney, this stunning residential/ mixed use development comprises an 8-storey design and build development delivering 53 residential 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units with 10% affordable allocation. At ground floor level, 7,000sqft of commercial/ studio workshop space has been created.  In parallel, a row of historic Regency and Victorian cottages have undergone a significant reconfiguration and restoration programme to create 5 additional residences.
