British Land set to blossom with Spitalfields projectComments Off on British Land set to blossom with Spitalfields project
The Blossom Street scheme is being developed jointly with the Corporation of London and comprises offices, flats and shops in three new buildings. British Land said the development will “provide a bridge between the City of London and Shoreditch” and is planning a new pedestrian route running from Commercial Street to Shoreditch High Street.
Head of development Nigel Webb said: “We see Blossom Street very much tapping into those emerging technology companies who are looking to benefit from Shoreditch and the whole buzz but also want to be near a Crossrail station.”
Work should begin next autumn, subject to planning permission, with the buildings ready for occupation by 2018.
