Proposals for a new leading fashion destination known as the Hackney Fashion Hub have been submitted for consultation by Manhattan Loft Corporation and Chatham Works.

The plans, which cost tens of millions of pounds, aim to deliver a retail led fashion destination that will include shops, art galleries, restaurants and design studios where local designers can showcase their work.

The development will consist of two seven storey buildings and pedestrianized open space, designed by renowned architect David Adjaye at Adjaye Associates.

The designers of the scheme believe that Hackney Fashion Hub will create hundreds of news jobs in the local area, create space for local designers and fashion start-ups and attract more people to spend their money in this part of Hackney.

The hub builds on Hackney’s already fashionable reputation and the hope is to make Hackney Central into a premier retail destination in the capital.
