CMA were pleased to have secured approval at the London Borough of Hackney’s virtual Planning Committee last night for the redevelopment of Thoresby House for Arcadia University.  This outstanding dMFK Architects designed 12 storey scheme will deliver 140 student bed spaces together with communal kitchen/dining rooms, living and study spaces, including much needed new community space that will be made available for use by the local community in perpetuity.

CMA have secured planning permission & listed building consent for the restoration, conversion and extension of the Grade II* listed Wapping Hydraulic Pumping Station, for UK Real Estate.  This stunning Latitude Architects designed scheme includes the introduction of new floors within the listed building, together with the creation of a glazed extension within the roof level water tanks, the conversion of the below-ground reservoir and the erection of a new three storey office block within the courtyard, which together will deliver 2,502sqm of office space and 1,223sqm of flexible restaurant/office space.
 
  

CMA Planning have secured approval for a revised planning and listed building consent for a 130,000 sqft masterplan to regenerate a complex of grade-II listed Victorian Mill Buildings on the River Calder in Wakefield for City & Provincial.  Sited next to the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery, Rutland Mills will form a new phase in the Wakefield Waterfront masterplan, expanding the creative, art and cultural programme currently led by the Hepworth.

A total of 32,000 sqft of space will be created in new buildings built in brick alongside the mill buildings.  The vision for the complex includes studio space for artists, designers and musicians; workspace for the digital and tech industries; artisan craft and makers; commercial space; retail; restaurant and hotel offers; event and gallery space and education.  The Hawkins\Brown masterplan will also deliver new public realm, including a central courtyard event space, gateways, and a new route to the River Calder.

   

CMA secured approval at last night’s Hackney Council's planning committee for the redevelopment of 305 Kingsland Road. The pH+ designed scheme will provide nearly 5000 sqm of employment space and co-living accommodation with 121 rooms to help contribute towards Hackney’s housing offer.  The site also fronts onto Kingsland Basin and features a planted facade to engage with the environment of the Canal basin, creating opportunities for biodiversity to thrive while providing new homes and innovative creative workspaces.

Our Yeo Street scheme was approved unanimously at last night’s Tower Hamlets virtual planning committee.  This great looking pH+ designed scheme for City & Suburban Homes will deliver 92 new homes adjoining the Limehouse Cut along with 2500 sqm of flexible creative workspace.
