Delivering social value: Brittania Leisure Centre and Academy, Hackney

This phase follows on from Morgan Sindall's delivery of the new City of London Academy Shoreditch Park and Britannia Leisure Centre in the scheme’s first phase.

Phase 2b, which will be built on the site of the old Britannia Leisure Centre, is the first part of a residential development and includes the design and build of four residential blocks.

These will range in height from three to 25 storeys and include homes of a mixed tenure. The scheme will include 81 affordable homes and 314 for private sale. 

The council said it currently envisaged the works will be divided into sections, with each one subject to separate practical completions dates. 

Hackney council said a bidders’ day would be announced as part of the contract notice.
