CMA Planning have submitted two applications on behalf of Aitch Group for the redevelopment of the Empress Coachworks on Corbridge Crescent, located within Bethnal Green, to the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.  Both schemes include the restoration, refurbishment and residential conversion of the historic Regency and Victorian Cottages on the site, together with the erection of three linked blocks that include 5000 sqft office/community floorspace at ground floor level, and the provision of enhancements to the surrounding public realm.  Scheme 1 rises to 10 storeys and provides 57 homes, whilst Scheme 2 rises to 12 storeys and provides 65 homes.

The schemes have been designed by award winning architects DSDHA and the proposals will serve to kick-start the regeneration of a part of Tower Hamlets that has for many years been blighted by the adjacent Marian Place Gas Works, which was decommissioned in 2012.
