LONDON’S SHOREDITCH will see a New-York style high line park, after Sadiq Khan, London’s mayor approved the plan.

The high line park will echo the New-York park that runs for nearly one and a half miles through Manhattan. The London version is set to run over Shoreditch’s railway arches and will occupy six acres. Visitor will be treated to trees, terraces and gardens.

The plans have been extremely controversial though with the group, Reclaim the Goodsyard in opposition to the development. The group said, “Sadiq Khan and head of planning Jules Pipe have handed over 10.5 acres of public land to build office blocks and a hotel, achieving just 90 affordable social rented homes.


“It is clear that this Mayor has no concern for the scale of the impact or for the East End and its people and businesses – to the detriment of London as a whole. He has overridden the concerns of our elected councils. Sadiq Khan’s decisions are destroying London.”

The plan which will include tower blocks was also opposed by the Hackney Council.
