The recently concluded Olympic Games Rio 2016 has led to media introspection of the legacy from the previous Olympic Games, London 2012 and specifically what has become of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. In a two part series, we can explore the role CF Commercial is honored to have played in the regeneration process:-
The former athletes’ village has formed a significant new mixed-use development with a real ‘village’ feel – it includes 70,000sqft of retail over 35 units and 2,818 residential units.
Exciting operators include: Olive Loves Alfie – a family lifestyle store; Mamalan – Bejing street food; Darkhorse – a bar-grill; Fishhouse – a seafood offering, and Signorelli – a large bakery with a glass-fronted kitchen.
CF Commercial’s Craig Fisher said of curating the retail offer, “We have created a real village feel – we’ve got the butcher, baker, many restaurants and with Liverpool Street station fifteen minutes travel you can certainly see the attraction.”
The former Press and Broadcast Center has had a comprehensive office-led redevelopment by Delancey. With 85,000 sq ft of retail & leisure across 5 unique spaces; the Canalside, the Yard, the Theatrespace, the Undercroft and the Gantry – which translates into approximately 30 units. CF were instructed as joint-retail agents with Cushman & Wakefield and have brought exciting tenants as outlined in our earlier news piece, ‘EVENT: Run Hackney Half-Marathon and The Breakfast Club soft opening.’
