The Mayor of Hackney has waded into the row surrounding the monstrous Goodsyard propoals by launching his own petition against the scheme
Mayor Jules Pipe believes the high-rise development ‘will cast a shadow over the whole of Tech City’. Pipe is also concerned the City-fringe scheme could threaten the unique character of Shoreditch.
The petition is on change.org HERE and we urge everyone to sign it as soon as possible.
According to Mayor Pipe: ‘These towers would stand almost as tall as One Canada Place at Canary Wharf; that might be OK for the City, but it is completely out of scale for Shoreditch. These luxury flats, which are well beyond the reach of ordinary Londoners, will cast a shadow over the whole of Tech City, and threaten to damage the local, creative economy.
