Long standing plans to surround Shoreditch High Street station with a cluster of tower blocks have been revised and a new consultation is open.
Proposals to redevelop the old goods yard after it was destroyed in a massive blaze in 1964 have been stalled for decades over what to do with the site that stretches across the borough boundary between Tower Hamlets and Hackney.
The recent, and controversial plans for a mix of tall towers for office and residential was called in by the then Mayor of London and a formal decision deferred following a recommendation that it be rejected.
It will also retain more of the site heritage, with a new approach to routes and public spaces.
However, the flipside is that the number of flats being built will be slashed from 1,350 to just 350 as the 46-storey towers are replaced with a single much smaller block of around 17 storeys.
As part of the new consultation, more details will be shown off at exhibitions, although the opening hours are hardly convenient to the average person, so will be quite limited in how many people they can reach.
