HACKNEY WICK & FISH ISLAND
Hackney Wick and Fish Island is part of a series of masterplans for existing neighbourhoods surrounding the Olympic Legacy site. The aim of the plan is to use the catalytic effect of the adjacent Olympics and Legacy Masterplan to create a vibrant local centre, increasing accessibility and permeability and strengthening the area’s character.
Elements of the plan are:
The creation of a strong and distinctive neighbourhood hub around the existing Hackney Wick station, which will act as a centre of activity, promoting mixed, active higher density uses, including opportunities for additional retail.
Creating a modern well designed mixed-use area (light industry-living-retail).
# Improving accessibility by adding links to and through the area, addressing existing barriers to movement, including the North London Line viaduct, the River Lea and the A12
a public transport-hub, mix of housing, light industry and retail, new bridges
