Green light for The Collective in Stratford

George Sell George Sell Uploaded 08 January 2020


UK: The Collective has been granted planning permission to redevelop an unused commercial site on Stratford High Street.

The London Legacy Development Corporation gave permission for a 22-storey scheme which will feature short-stay co-living rooms, a community and events hub, and affordable workspace for small businesses and local entrepreneurs.

Plans for The Collective Stratford were developed following extensive engagement with local businesses and community organisations to ensure the scheme meets their needs and is well-integrated into the local area.

The Collective Stratford is set to deliver 287 short-stay co-living rooms with a shared cinema, restaurant, gym and outdoor terraces, in addition to 7,700 square feet of workspace (including 3,450 square feet of co-working space which will be let at 50 per cent affordable rent).

There will also be community space for local residents, businesses and charities, a ‘Community Investment Programme’ for local partners to use the events and employment facilities free of charge, and the creation of 155 jobs.

Designed by London-based firm PLP Architecture, the co-living rooms on offer can be used by members for one night up to several months and provide exclusive access to shared amenities such as a cinema, gym and terrace with panoramic views across London.
