A dramatic regeneration of isolated former industrial sites into a thriving employment-led mixed use redevelopment. The employment uses spill out from the new dedicated London Business Centre to provide flexible start-up business space throughout the scheme, animating the new streets and spaces, reinforcing a new community for living and working.
Where regeneration is inspired by new business, a sense of optimism and ambition can inspire the whole neighbourhood, and new residents can see genuine benefit in supporting these local enterprises, to enhance the quality and character of the streets where they live.
