Fladgate LLP has advised Cathedral Group on its joint venture with Galliard Homes to deliver the 2.2 acre mixed use project Royal Gateway and Caxton Works in Canning Town, London.
The scheme will redevelop and regenerate the former Goswell Bakeries buildings and Moss Electrical warehouse located off Caxton Street North in Canning Town. Designed by architects Studio Egret West, the new development will range in height from one to 16 storeys and create a Borough Market style destination providing 336 new homes for private sale, commercial premises and retail space, complete with rooftop community gardens, pedestrianised streets, squares and walkways.
The scheme was granted planning consent by London Borough of Newham in December 2013. Galliard will be responsible for providing the 336 new homes for private sale complete with 138 parking spaces, concierge, podium-level landscaped courtyards, communal roof gardens and panoramic views from the upper floors. Known as Royal Gateway, the residential element of the project will be located in five newly built apartment buildings. Cathedral will deliver Caxton Works, which is the name of the commercial part of the development. There will be 13 commercial units at ground, mezzanine and first floor levels offering 26,964 sq ft of space.
Cathedral will control the design and management of the public realm improvements, including the pedestrianisation of Hoy Street. The vision is for Hoy Street to become a vibrant market style pedestrian space, comprising a mix of studio workshops, local retail outlets, cafes and al fresco eateries that will create a new “Borough Market” atmosphere for the new community.
Construction work on Royal Gateway and Caxton Works started in February 2014, with first residential occupations from Q3 2016, with the development scheduled for overall completion in Spring 2017.
The cross-firm team was led by Fladgate real estate partner, Antonia Brandes.
