British Land confirms it will move forward with plans to redevelop the Shoreditch Estate on the edge of the City of London

Shoreditch Estate

The developer has signed an agreement with the City of London Corporation to redevelop three sites over 2 acres, which front onto Shoreditch High Street.

The land has potential for 320,000 sq ft of office, retail and residential accommodation in a mix of new, retained and refurbished buildings.

Under the deal British Land will draw down a development agreement subject to securing revised planning consent on the sites.

Architect AHMM has been appointed to draw up the scheme.

Tim Roberts, Head of Offices at British Land, said: “With much of our existing development programme completing over the next year, this site further adds to our pipeline. We remain positive about the outlook for development in London and expect this investment to generate good returns for our shareholders.”
