Monier Road, Bow, London, E3
Fish Island lies to the immediate south of Hackney Wick within 10 minute walk of the Overground station, and adjacent to the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park, Olympic Stadium and Westfield Stratford City. The area has long been a variable mix of industrial warehousing and commercial business. Many buildings are home to artistic collectives and creative industry, designers and makers. Notable occupiers include Main Yard Studios, The Trampery, Crate Brewery, Howling Hops Tank Bar and The Yard Theatre establishing the area’s profile as a destination for new business. Surrounding development includes the construction of over 1,000 new homes as well as improvements to the capacity of Hackney Wick station led by TfL and the London Legacy Development Corporation. As well as significant volumes of new housing there is over 800,000 ft² of new commercial space which has now been consented. Other notable changes will include walkways and bridges linking the various enclaves of the Wick, Fish Island & Wick Lane and Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park.
