The Bishopsgate Goodsyard
The site forms part of the Bishopsgate/ South Shoreditch Opportunity Area identified in the Mayor’s London Plan for high-density mixed-use development. Hammerson acquired an option to buy the site as part of its purchase in 2002 of RT Group Developments, which included a portfolio of properties and development sites.
Bishopsgate Goodsyard is a proposed mixed-use development on a 10.5 acre site to the north of Bishops Square, London E1, bounded by Bethnal Green Road to the north, Shoreditch High Street and Commercial Street to the west, Liverpool Street main line to the south, Brick Lane to the East, and land just south of Sclater Street to the north and traversed by Wheler Street and Shoreditch High Street station railway.
350,000 sq.m. of overall development; • 1000-2000 new homes; • 75,000 – 150,000 sq.m. of non residential floor space; • 1.8 ha of publicly accessible open space.
The project is being undertaken as a Joint Venture by Ballymore Properties Ltd and Hammerson Plc.
