The Spitalfields Development Group, a joint venture between developer Hammerson and the Corporation of London, is signing up occupiers for 21 shops to complement its east London office scheme. The 4200 m2 of retail space is part of a Foster and Partners design, and includes a two-storey pavilion at the Bishop’s Square development, near Liverpool Street station. Buildings along Brushfield Street have been restored, preserving the historic streetscape and the view of Hawksmoor’s newly-restored Christchurch Spitalfields.
