Award-winning London developer and asset manager, LBS Properties, has topped out at its HKR Hoxton development, a striking new collection of 69 private – and 14 affordable homes – in this highly sought after area of east London.

Designed by the award-winning Hawkins\Brown architects, the new development is being delivered by contractor Tolent and sits at 211-227 Hackney Road, replacing a disused bingo hall with an architecturally striking stepped 10 storey building that includes a grid of weathering steel frames which will continually evolve in appearance. Demolition of the existing building commenced in early 2018, with overall completion expected in early 2020.

In addition to the studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments, there will be 10,000 sq ft. of flexible workspace at ground level, as well as 4,000 sq ft. of landscaped gardens on the fifth floor podium level, benefiting from attractive views towards the City of London. Other amenities at the development include a 12-hour concierge, gym and a private screening room.

Situated just 300 metres from Hoxton Overground Station and a short walk from Columbia Road Flower Market, Haggerston Park and Broadway Market, the development enjoys a sought after position between Shoreditch, Hackney and London Fields. There are a wealth of popular bars, restaurants and amenities in the immediate area, along with the key employment and transport hub of Old Street Roundabout to south.

Nick Crawford, Managing Director of LBS Properties, comments: “This is an architecturally striking mixed-use development in one of east London’s most sought after areas, which continues to grow in popularity. The bold exterior will make this a marker building for the local area, with residents able to enjoy high specification homes and a range of on-site amenities, all while being moments from the hotspots of Shoreditch and Hoxton.”
