Housing developer Peabody and workspace provder The Trampery have announce joint venture Fish Island Village, a new kind of all-in-one development designed to support London’s creative & technology entrepreneurs.
The collaborative project sets out to address the cost issues faced by London’s thriving startup and creative ecosystemwith a new kind of integrated development. It will offer entrepreneurs a place to live, a place to grow their business, shared facilities and support. The project is being developed on a six-acre site in Hackney Wick, East London, under the name Fish Island Village.
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson is working hard to deliver the new housing that the city needs and has allocated £7.3m that will help to deliver 580 new homes on-site to rent and buy. The scheme also includes circa 5,300 square metres of commercial space, of which 4,500 square metres will be operated by The Trampery as workspaces, a fabrication workshop, a theatre and a bar-restaurant. Overall the site will support more than 500 jobs in technology and creative businesses. Work is due to start on site in Summer 2016.
