Hoxton Press June Newsletter
Welcome to the June edition of The Anthology, providing you with helpful information and updates for our Hoxton Press Project, on Bridport Place and Penn Street.
Work on site has progressed significantly since our last update, our red brick tower, Duo is now ready for occupation this month.
The taller of the two, Mono Tower, is still on schedule to complete in Autumn time and will be handed to Anthology as the key part of the second phase. Externally, the brickwork and glazing has reached roof level with some minor sections remaining. Internally, the fit-out has progressed as expected with a few the lower floors already inspected by ourselves.
Part of this handover process involves a number of rigorous tests, functionality checks, as well as commissioning of the homes to ensure they have been built to the required standard and safety requirements. We have been very pleased with the results so far with our homes passing these. After this, there will be a minor third phase which will involve some landscaping of the area where the site cabins currently are.
Make sure you regularly view the Wates notice board at the far northern end of Bridport Place for our weekly updates.
On behalf of the entire project team at Hoxton Press we would like to thank you for your ongoing patience and co-operation.
Hoxton Press Big Lunch
On Saturday 23rd June we will be hosting our third annual Big Lunch in Shoreditch Park!
Like last year, there will be fun for all the family with live music, origami, face-painting and colouring competitions. There will be a food stall present, but it would be great if those that came could bring a picnic!
Shoreditch Park Primary School will also be joining us to host some games with a few special guests…
It’s a great event where your local community can spend time together so we hope to see you there.
Walk to School Week
We worked with Shoreditch Park Primary School for Walk to School week that took place 21st -25th May. Bill Haworth (Project Executive) spoke at an assembly to raise awareness of the benefits of walking to school, and how to notice not only hazards, but also the nature that surrounds Shoreditch Park.
