Hackney Wick/Fish Island

London, UK, 2008

Client: London Thames Gateway Development Agency

The development of a master plan for the regeneration of the Hackney Wick / Fish Island area, incorporating the western half of the Olympic Park, continued the broader regeneration project catalysed by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This project was developed by an EDAW | AECOM team, led by Guy Briggs.

The regeneration master plan introduces a new fine grain movement structure to this degraded industrial area, enabling multi modal movement through the area and its integration with the surrounding urban fabric. The master plan proposes the retention of a substantial proportion of light industrial uses, to develop a mixed use urban area appropriate to employment and servicing needs of the local neighbourhood and the city as a whole.

The broader strategy for change anticipates the colonisation of the area for arts and cultural uses, continuing an organic process of change that had seen the regeneration of London’s Soho, Covent Garden, Clerkenwell and Shoreditch.
