Currell has acquired a 5,000 sq ft commercial space on Wallis Road, E9 in the heart of Hackney Wick – increasing the reach of Currell in east London, where we predict significant activity and regeneration over the coming years. This follows the recent appointment of Matt Cobb as Director of New Homes, who will be spearheading Currell’s growth plans.

Part of 61-63 Wallis Road will become a new office for Currell, due to open in Q4 2016 and providing sales, lettings, new homes, commercial agency and property management. Currell Commercial is currently seeking tenants for the remaining space, which offers two retail units and one A3 (subject to planning) café/restaurant unit on the ground floor of this new build development, which has residential units above.

Wallis Road sits opposite Hackney Wick Overground Station, at the centre of the LLDC’s (London Legacy Development Corporation) designated mixed-use development zone, which will be transformed into Hackney Wick Central, a new neighbourhood hub and central business district (CBD). It is predicted that by 2025, Hackney Wick and neighbouring Fish Island will house between 4500-5000 new homes, along with new commercial spaces and affordable art studios, boosted by infrastructure improvements to Hackney Wick Station and nearby Stratford, including Crossrail.

As well as being the first established agent to take an office in the area, we were involved with one of the first new developments on Fish Island. Biggs Square (also known as Vantage Square) on Felstead Street was sold by Currell in 2008 for housing provider Family Mosaic, with 24 private sales at a blended pound per square foot figure of £341. Currell also sold the commercial space at ground level.

Anne Currell, Group CEO, said: “This marks a significant point in our east London expansion plans and we are delighted to have secured such a prominent space at the centre of what will become a thriving new neighbourhood. Hackney Wick and Fish Island are areas of great opportunity, with the potential for carefully managed development that will provide not only much needed new homes but opportunities for leisure and employment. The nearby Here East digital quarter, when fully operational in 2018, will bring over 7,500 workers and £340m to the local community.”

Turk group

Currell is sponsoring a new exhibition by contemporary British artist Gavin Turk at the Béton Brut Gallery in Hackney Wick.

Turk’s exhibition, Transit, opens on Thursday 15 September and is sponsored by Currell and Truman’s Brewery. The gallery can be visited by appointment during the week and is open from 12-5pm on Saturdays. The exhibition will run until Saturday 10 December.

Béton Brut Gallery is a collaboration between social enterprise Creative Wick and Béton Brut, which will host regular exhibitions of the work of Hackney Wick and Fish Island’s best established and emerging artists.

Gavin Turk’s Transit will take place against the backdrop of the fast changing and rapid redevelopment of Hackney Wick, which is putting the world’s largest artist community under threat. Transit launches a series of new etchings derived from the emissions of his white transit van. Profits from the sale of the prints will go towards the on-going work of Creative Wick.

To unite the creative community and encourage working together as a way of countering the negative impacts of gentrification in Hackney Wick, Creative Wick has collaborated with a variety of different sectors, working with local businesses, makers, producers and suppliers to stage the exhibition, including the printmaker Tom’s Etching Studio, exhibition partner Truman’s Brewery and gallery partner Currell.

This body of work has been made locally and the inspired pieces include Exhaust Emissions etching on solar plate, printed by Thomas Moore (from Tom’s Etching Studio), who has also been invited to exhibit alongside Turk. Turk will also be showing White Transit Van Compression in the gallery space.

William Chamberlain, Founder of Creative Wick comments: “As one of the UK’s foremost contemporary artists, we’re excited to be partnering with Gavin Turk to ensure a legacy for Hackney Wick as a viable creative area. Initiatives like this enable us to raise awareness of the constant struggle for recognition of the vital role that artists and the wider creative economy play in the process of urban renewal, something that is all too often overlooked.”

Sophie Pearce, Director at Béton Brut says: “The artist is in transit and so is Hackney Wick. The exhaust etching is a parting gift to the community. This collaboration between Béton Brut Gallery and Creative Wick is at once a celebration of Gavin and his connection to Hackney Wick, and the birth of a scheme that will reinvest funds towards exhibiting up-and-coming local artists.”

Gavin Turk’s Transit exhibition is free to attend and will run from Thursday 15 September – Saturday 10 December 2016 at Béton Brut Gallery, in collaboration with Creative Wick: Unit 2, 30 Felstead St, London E9 5LG.

Everyone at Currell Battersea was distraught to see the much loved Battersea Arts Centre in flames last Friday afternoon. Sadly, the fire destroyed the Centre’s Grand Hall and Lower Hall, spaces that had been used for entertaining Londoners for more than a century.image12

Luckily though, and thanks to the sterling efforts of the fire brigade and the centre’s staff, the front of the building was saved and re-opened within 24 hours. We did what we could on Friday and again over the weekend by opening our doors to the BAC’s staff so that they had a place to regroup and hold meetings.

Needless to say many of the staff were extremely distressed. This really brought home to us how much the BAC means to the people who work there and the local community as a whole. It is times like this that remind you what a wonderful place Battersea is.

The Centre’s artistic director David Jubb has been giving regular blog updates in the aftermath of the fire and in it he speaks about Battersea’s mid-19th century motto Not For Me, Not For You, But For Us. That’s been evident all around over the last few days as people do what they can to help, however small. David describes in his blog what happened when he went to buy some flowers at the stall outside Clapham Junction station to brighten up the BAC’s Scratch Bar. A complete stranger asked if the flowers were for BAC and immediately offered to pay for them.

Office with BACAnne from the BAC has told us that they are already looking to the future and “the long road ahead, from rehousing our creative programme, to assessing what’s lost and what’s salvageable, to rebuilding and reevaluating our plans for the building.”

That is going to take an awful lot of money and the fundraising has already started with the support of the National Funding Scheme. As at Tuesday afternoon, more than £64,000 had been raised from donations and a further £100,000 pledged from the owners of Battersea Power Station. You can donate here. Every penny will go towards helping the Battersea Arts Centre rise from the ashes, literally. For updates go to www.bac.org.uk, or follow BAC on witter @battersea_arts or @davidjubb. If you can support in any other way, please email davidj@bac.org.uk
