Hackney Gazette: "Controversal Hammerson 51-storey tower block gets go-ahead from Hackney Council - again"

Link to Hackney Gazette

"A 51-storey skyscraper in Shoreditch which opponents claim encroaches into a unique heritage area has been given the go-ahead for the second time by Hackney Council.

"Planning permission was originally granted in 2009 for three skyscrapers, containing offices, a hotel, 191 private flats and 50 affordable homes on the Bishop’s Place site. But the economic climate forced developer Hammerson to redesign the scheme.

"David Atkins, Hammerson Chief Executive said:
“The scheme will deliver high quality office accommodation alongside a landmark residential tower in a convenient, vibrant location.”
