Whitechapel Central

Whitechapel Central is set to transform a former Safestore facility into a new urban quarter, with 30% of the site dedicated to new public realm. 564 new homes – 149 of which will be affordable housing – and commercial space including flexible office space for SMEs, shops, a gym and a cafe sit around a new public square and landscaped walking routes. Straddling two conservation areas, the design concept focuses on connectivity and permeability, introducing new pedestrianised streets and squares.
