Description of Whitechapel Central

Whitechapel Central is a mixed-use development in Whitechapel, London E1.

Whitechapel Central is set to transform the former Safestore facility into a new urban quarter, with nearly 30% of the site dedicated to new public realm.

The scheme, which includes a large proportion of family homes alongside 38,000sqft of commercial space and storage facilities for the market, is a fundamental piece of Whitechapel's vision for regeneration.

Straddling two nearby conservation areas, the design concept focuses on connectivity and permeability, introducing new pedestrianised streets and squares. A number of new ‘character areas' embed the scheme into its surroundings.

The predominantly brick and reconstituted stone design creates strong street-based frontages to the existing urban context, while a glass and aluminium-clad tower stands at the heart of the scheme, enhancing the future townscape of Whitechapel.

The 564 new homes will deliver 149 affordable homes and 38,000sqft of commercial space, which will include flexible offices for SMEs, shops, a gym and a cafe around a new public square and landscaped walking routes.

Construction is due to begin in early 2017, with first completions on site expected in 2018. The development is expected to complete in 2020.
