The project to transform the former Olympic press and broadcast centres into a new digital business hub has been given the green light by planners.
The iCity development, now renamed Here East, has been approved by the London Legacy Development Corporation.
The scheme will comprise over one million square feet of space.
The redevelopment of the building is expected to begin in summer 2014.
Gavin Poole, chief executive of iCITY, said: “I am delighted that our designs and plans to develop a world-leading cluster for cutting-edge creative and digital companies have been approved.
“As well as creating thousands of jobs and training opportunities, Here East will provide state of the art infrastructure and capacity for the fastest growing sectors of the UK economy to continue their impressive expansion.
“Redevelopment of the buildings will begin in the summer.”
