A disused timber yard on a canal in London will soon be transformed into this smart waterfront development.

The £5.3million project will see flats, affordable housing and a restaurant built alongside the Regent’s Canal in Hackney.

The scheme is a partnership between developer bloc and British Waterways London.

BW head of property Stuart Mills said: “A site that has been under-used for so long can now be transformed to bring new homes to Hackney and improve access to the canal.”
