How the AHMM proposals will look

The existing site is bordered by Great Eastern Street, Tabernacle Street and Singer Street and includes buildings which General said are in a state of disrepair as well as vacant land.

Others working on the deal include M&E consultant Atelier Ten, QS Quartz Project Services, principal designer Sweco and structural engineer Elliott Wood.

The scheme is close to Squire & Partners’ Art’otel Hoxton which has been built by JRL on the corner of Rivington Street and Great Eastern Street. The scheme is due to open next week.
