Restoration and Development 


Hackney is an up-and-coming area with lots of development plans being made to restore and increase the quality of life for its residents. This includes old warehouse conversions for businesses and plenty of buildings for living spaces.  Hackney is always evolving and developing away from its undesirable past. It has even landed itself on a few lists of ”best places to live in London”. If you’d told me that 10 years ago… well, you get the point.
