Bishopsgate Goodsyard is one of the most exciting redevelopment sites in London today. Bringing vitality to the currently derelict site of a goods depot that has lain idle since 1964, the Goodsyard will draw from these neighbouring areas, offering a complementary mix of independent traders, new startups and international brands, along with a brand new park and 500 new homes.

The proposals include 130,000 sq m of offices and affordable workspace, 1,600 sq m of retail, a destination building for cultural space on Brick Lane, as well as exhibition space along the historic London Road beneath an elevated park. At street level, a fresh approach to routes and public spaces also includes a new east-west pedestrian street running from Brick Lane to Shoreditch High Street. The plans see a great deal of the site’s heritage retained, with the listed Braithwaite Viaduct arches opened up to the public and the Oriel Gate restored to become the ‘gateway’ entrance to the site from Shoreditch High Street.
A new park will include a series of connected gardens, terraces and walkways, providing a wide variety of biodiversity, including trees, planting and a range of accessible amenity space.
