Aberfeldy Street, Poplar, E14 0NU
Timeline 2019 – 2022
Working alongside Jan Kattein Architects as High Street Works, we will deliver a meanwhile strategy for Aberfeldy Village. Aberfeldy Street will be revived as the heart of the local community. It will have a diverse offer that reflects the needs of the community but also appeals to Londoners more broadly. The street will be vibrant with improved shop frontages and public realm enhancements that make it a pleasant place to be and which will have a positive impact on the perception of the area. There will be a programme of activities that deliver against the core project objectives:
Supporting the existing retail businesses to prepare for the regeneration and change through business support and a shop front improvement programme.
Empty retail spaces will host a Start Here programme to incubate and curate independent businesses during the meanwhile period and dovetail with a programme that accelerates successful meanwhile uses into the new development.
Change the perception of the area by having a best in class example of an enhanced public realm in the meanwhile through co designed furniture, street lighting and greening interventions.
Bring the new and existing communities together through events programming that builds on skills and passions of local residents and businesses.
