Description of Blossom Street

Blossom Street is a new development in Spitalfields, London E1.

Blossom Street is a regeneration area in Spitalfields close to the Shoreditch Tech City and the core City of London market, comprising three sites and being developed in partnership with the Corporation of London.

The plans, developed by architects AHMM, will deliver a total of 347,000 sq ft comprising office space, 13 new retail units and 40 new apartments. The various elements would be integrated through two new areas of public space, totaling 15,000 sq ft, and would be accessible via a new pedestrian route running from Commercial Street to Shoreditch High Street.

The development will provide:
• 33,040m2 of commercial space
• 4,000m2 of residential space (40 apartments)
• 3,550m2 of retail space
• 1,400m2 of public realm

The proposals outline how the existing buildings, which include partially vacant warehousing and commercial space, would be reconnected through a mix of refurbishment, extension and redevelopment.

British Land appointed AHMM to oversee the design of the site, which sits within the Elder Street Conservation Area. The proposals, developed in consultation with local amenity groups and residents, seek to integrate the new buildings with their surroundings through sensitive and sympathetic architecture, with much of the important historical fabric retained or restored.

Alongside AHMM, award winning architects Duggan Morris, DSDHA and Stanton Williams were appointed on specific elements to ensure design variation, in keeping with the character of the wider area.

AHMM, Duggan Morris and DSDHA, collectively developed plans for the collection of buildings fronting onto Shoreditch High Street, bounded by Blossom Street, Folgate Street and Fleur De Lis Passage. The plans show a re-purposing of the existing warehouse units as modern office space, with floorplates ranging from 500 sq ft to 20,000 sq ft, intended to attract occupiers from across the burgeoning TMT sector, from mature corporates to start-up businesses.

The plans include provision for a wide range of retail, café and restaurant uses at street level, aimed at independent operators, intended to complement the mix at the nearby Spitalfields Market and the vibrant Shoreditch area to the north.

Stanton Williams led the design of proposals for the adjacent area, north of Fleur De Lis Street. The proposals include the conversion and refurbishment of the locally listed Elder Street warehouse, creating studio offices with retail at street level.

The design of the third plot, led by AHMM, is informed by the existing Georgian houses on Elder Street and Fleur De Lis Street, with 40 apartments, including on-site affordable, shaped around a courtyard.

At Blossom Street, the Court of Appeal ruled in November that the planning permission for the proposed development could not be legally challenged, bringing the planning process to a successful conclusion. British Land will continue discussions with potential occupiers to secure a sufficient level of pre-lets before committing to the scheme.
