As one of only six remaining Grade I Listed buildings in the borough, Aitch Group and Vfund have taken great care to ensure the safeguarding of the site as supported by Hackney Borough Council who complimented the heritage benefits the scheme would deliver for the currently undervalued church building.
The existing church building will see significant refurbishment undertaken to ensure it is restored to its former glory and remains the iconic landmark within the community for years to come. Construction will begin after a tenant has been secured for the building, with work on Vetus expected to take 12 months and work on Novum expected to take 18 months.
Agents Strettons and Compton have been jointly appointed as leasing agents to seek a suitable tenant for Vetus + Novum as campus office space in what is one of London’s most fashionable areas and will facilitate an Agent’s Event on 20th April, on-site, for introducers and representatives.
Originally designed in 1863 and completed in 1865, St Michael & All Angels was the first major church project of renowned East End architect James Brooks (1825-1901) and served the local community up until 1964.
