Shoreditch Regeneration Scheme

The Stage, Shoreditch Regeneration Scheme

Project Objective


To support the regeneration of a 2.5 acre disused East London site by sustainable transport solutions and sensitive highway engineering design.

Services provided:

  • Transportation and Traffic advice
  • Transport Assessment
  • Travel Plan
  • Car Parking Management Plan
  • Car Park Justification report
  • Design advice on the car parking, access and servicing areas

By arguing special circumstances we persuaded the London Borough of Hackney to agree an enhanced car parking provision.

Project Description:

The multi-million pound regeneration scheme, spread over 2.5 acres and comprised:

  • 385 flats within a new 40 storey tower
  • 250,000 sq. ft. of office space providing employment for up to 3,000 staff
  • 50,000 sq. ft. of shops, cafés and restaurants
  • An existing 19th century Victorian railway viaduct will be restored to accommodate a plaza and 7,800sq.ft. "urban park" on top.

Benefits of Scheme

In addition to the regeneration and improved employment prospects for this area, the centrepiece of the project will be restoration of the Shakespearean Curtain Theatre. This theatre was famous for the first performance of Romeo and Juliet, and was discovered during archaeological investigations in 2011. The theatre will be excavated, preserved and exhibited in a 13,000sq.ft. space that includes a 164-seat indoor auditorium. Outside, a 200-seat outdoor performance space will link to a new 1.3-acre open square.
