The Goodsyard is a mixed-use development on a 10-acre site in Shoreditch, London E1.
The joint venture between Hammerson and Ballymore will provide 500 homes, with 50% affordable, as well as 1.4 million sq ft of workspace, including one of the largest single contributions of the affordable workspace of any development in London.
The masterplan, designed by architect Faulkner Browns Architects, includes a high line-style elevated public park sitting on top of the restored historic railway arches that will provide a series of connected gardens, terraces and walkways, with a wide variety of biodiversity, including trees and planting.
Designed by landscape architects Spacehub, the park will be one of the largest new parks in central London. In total, the site will have over six acres of the public realm, 25% larger than proposed in the original plans, first submitted in 2014, and covering over 50% of the whole site.
The mixed-use development will also provide new pedestrianised streets through the site, with a new east-west street created and the historic London Road under the arches restored and opened up for the first time in decades.
All heritage assets on the site will be fully restored, with work led by local heritage specialists Chris Dyson Architects, including the Grade II-listed Oriel Gateway and the Braithwaite Arches, which will become home to new retail and hospitality providers, with the opportunity within the scheme for over 100 emerging and independent businesses.
The office buildings, which will provide varied types of workspace to suit occupiers ranging from large corporates to small creative businesses, have been designed by Eric Parry Architects and Buckley Gray Yeoman. FaulknerBrowns has also designed elements of the workspace provision, as well as the residential, hotel and cultural buildings.
The development will be car-free and provides over 3,000 cycle spaces. It also includes two new flexible culture and arts buildings, one in Hackney and one in Tower Hamlets, with a destination cultural building on Brick Lane and a new exhibition space located within the arches on London Road.
The developers work with master planner FaulknerBrowns Architects, Eric Parry Architects, Buckley Gray Yeoman, Spacehub, and Chris Dyson Architects.
2019 October - In October 2019, the Joint Venture submitted the amended planning applications for the redevelopment of the Goodsyard to the Greater London Authority (GLA).
Following the acquisition of the site from Railtrack in 2002 and the completion of the London Overground and the opening of Shoreditch High Street Station in 2010, the joint venture has been working to deliver a scheme that would transform this strategically important site, which has been derelict since a fire in the 1960s.
