Housing association launches work and live scheme
A housing association has joined forces with a workspace provider to help entrepreneurs set up in central London.
Peabody and The Trampery are piloting a new integrated residential and workspace property which offers start-ups for residential accommodation along with business space.
It is being developed on a six-acre site in Hackney Wick, east London, under the name Fish Island Village and includes 580 homes on site.
Mr Johnson said: “This exciting partnership between Peabody and The Trampery is a shining example of what can be done to support the needs of our creative and tech talent.”
Stephen Howlett, chief executive of the Peabody Group, said: “We are very excited about the potential for this unique partnership with The Trampery, to engage the local creative community, while providing much-needed affordable housing.
“This landmark agreement demonstrates our shared commitment to creating opportunities for Londoners, by providing buildings and spaces that are a springboard for innovation and growth.”
