It’s been a great week for the hatch. team as the first of our CLiCs modules was fully furnished as part of our contribution to the new residential scheme at Barking Riverside in East London. Our precision manufactured modules will form part of the affordable housing solution for this exciting urban regeneration project. Gerard Walsh, our hatch. CEO, is pictured here opening the door to the one-bed show home.
Located along the banks of the River Thames (east of Canary Wharf, City Airport and the Thames Barrier), covering 443 acres, Barking Riverside will include 10,800 new homes of mixed size and style. There is also provision for 65,000 square metres of commercial floor space for shopping, restaurants, cafés, community and leisure facilities, healthcare and schools. There are also plans for large open spaces, public squares and a brand new rail station with bus and river transport interchange providing excellent links to central London.
In 2021, the new Barking Riverside station will open, part of a £263 million extension to the London Overground. This will provide a major new artery into London’s transport network, bringing the City into easy reach and allowing residents to access major employment and cultural centres within just half an hour.
hatch. are delighted to be involved with this exciting regeneration scheme and we look forward to sharing our updates with you.
