New cultural visitor attraction

New cultural visitor attraction

A disused site in Shoreditch, London is to be transformed into a new community and cultural visitor attraction in a multi-million pound regeneration project.

Planning permission has been granted for Plough Yard Development’s proposals for the 2.5 acre site which will comprise retail space, cafés, restaurants as well as office space and a 40-storey residential tower building.

The centrepiece of the Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will designed scheme is an ancient monument, a showcase of London’s second oldest Shakespearean playhouse, the 16th Century Curtain Theatre - where Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and Henry V were first performed, which was discovered during archaeological investigations in 2011. The theatre and related finds will be excavated, preserved and exhibited in a 13,000sq ft space including a 164-seat indoor auditorium.

Externally, a 200-seat outdoor performance space will link to a new 1.3 acre open square featuring shops, bars, cafés and restaurants. An existing 19th Century Victorian railway viaduct will be restored to accommodate shops spilling out onto a plaza and with a 7,800sq ft urban park on top. In response to the growing popularity of cycling in London, 742 cycle parking spaces including 128 above ground for visitors are being provided and £149,000 is being invested in local Barclays cycle hire.
