The Goodsyard

A masterplan for joint venture development partners Hammerson and Ballymore, to regenerate the ten acre Bishopsgate Goodsyard site, creating a vibrant new mixed-use urban quarter in the heart of Shoreditch.

The plans include 5.9 acres of public realm both at ground level and as part of the proposed park on top of the historic Braithwaite Viaduct. This will include a diverse mix of imaginative landscaped spaces, as well as cafés, restaurants and a hotel, creating active uses as part of the extended ‘high-line’-style walkway.

The currently derelict and inaccessible Bishopsgate Goodsyard is made up of characterful, listed structures dating back to 1860. Most of these features have remained hidden from the public since the Goodsyard closed almost 60 years ago. Our masterplan celebrates the sites history by retaining features such as the Oriel Gateway, the Boundary Wall, and the Braithwaite Arches; threading new east-west and north-south streets through the historic features creating authentic extensions to the fabric of the city, and connecting Shoreditch High Street with Brick Lane.

Our vision for the future of Goodsyard transcends generations, celebrates and reuses heritage and creates a mixed-use environment with a truly unique identity. In the context of a post-Covid recovery, it has never been more important that we plan to create balanced neighbourhoods that will better promote heath, wellbeing and a sustainable future.

Iterative process

Previous masterplans proposed a much taller, larger format of development. Our vision for the Goodsyard caters for a rich mix of uses within smaller buildings, with lower heights, whilst still making the most of this incredibly constrained site.

The proposals include cultural space, workspace, homes, great public realm and one of central London’s largest new parks. A variety of formats of workspace and retail are included to meet the needs of large business and small independent traders. 7.5 % of the workspace and 50% of the 500 homes will be affordable.
This future focused development will, create a legacy that both preserves the site’s unique heritage whilst, creating a characterful place for Londoners to enjoy for generations to come.

The Goodsyard site will be the jewel in the crown of Shoreditch. This will be a place designed with wellbeing in mind, where people want to live, work, and enjoy themselves.
