Description of Paragon Road

This is a mixed-use development on a 1.5-acre former BT depot site on Fish Island in Hackney Wick in London E9.

Located just west of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and a couple hundred yards from Hackney Wick Station, the site has planning permission for 145 high-quality apartments across four new buildings, of which 50 will be affordable.

The plans also include 23,000 sq. ft of commercial space at ground level, fronting the public realm. The development will offer a number of facilities, including parking spaces and cycle storage as well as a 24-hour concierge, communal garden, balconies, and a residents’ viewing room.

The proposed development, designed by the leading architecture and interior design firm Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher (CJCT), promotes the ongoing urban renewal and regeneration of Hackney Wick, which has benefitted significantly from its proximity to the Olympic Park.

A key driver for the redevelopment of the site is to enhance the public realm locally around Fish Island and provide a new pedestrian route to the upgraded Hackney Wick Station. The route also reinstates a lost historic street and brings strong active street frontages around the site.

The scheme forms a key component of the London Legacy Development Corporation’s (LLDC) regenerative Masterplan for the area surrounding Hackney Wick Station - the Hackney Wick Fish Island Retrospective Masterplan - which in 2019 was recognised with the Planning Award for Placemaking at High Densities.

History

Previously used by BT for storage and back of house operations, the existing warehouse and associated office buildings were vacated by BT at the end of 2019.
