Goodluck Hope Development – East London

Article added:

Dearneside is pleased to announce that we have recently been awarded the Balcony and Architectural Metalwork Package on the prestigious Ballymore Goodluck Hope Development in East London. We have already been working with Ballymore for numerous years on the neighbouring London City Island project.

Goodluck Hope is an industrially inspired island development, revitalizing the East London Docklands riverside. Located near both the financial district of Canary Wharf and the creative Shoreditch and Hackney districts, the development is in an ideal central location.

The plan is to build over 800 new homes, 2,000 sq m of commercial space, 235 sq m of education floorspace, a brewery, and a restored Grade II-listed Orchard Dry Dock.

Previously the island was a hive of industry, housing a number of industrial firms from coopers to shipbuilders and the East India Dock Company. The aim of the development is to showcase this great industrial heritage through design and materials used.

At the heart of the development is Douglass Tower. The 30-storey building, which has been designed by architects Allies and Morrison, is split into a series of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
