Vastint appoints GCW on Sugar House Island

GCW has been instructed by Vastint to advise on its mixed use regeneration project Sugar House Island. The 20-acre East London site will eventually deliver 1,200 homes, 624,000 sq ft of offices, creative space, retail, leisure and a 350- bed hotel.

Sugar House Island will create a canalside neighbourhood and creative hub including new homes, a primary school, 3 acres of open space and a range of workspace. The area has a rich industrial heritage and Vastint is committed to preserving historic buildings alongside delivering contemporary space to live and work in.

The first phase, Dane’s Yard, is complete and work is now underway on the next mixed use plot. GCW will offer a fresh pair of eyes and overarching consultancy. It will share its urban regeneration expertise and focus on securing a vibrant mix of ground floor commercial occupiers. The agent has worked with Vastint since 2014, raising awareness and securing sites for Moxy Hotels.

GCW Director Philippe Micheal said: “We have built a strong relationship with Vastint and are very excited to be appointed to help transform such a unique historic site. Sugar House Island has all the ingredients necessary for a successful urban regeneration project and I’m confident it will prove a huge success.”
