The Stage

 

In the City A.M article 8th February 2016, Catherine Neilan writes “Shakespeare’s former theatre The Curtain now the scene for Galliard Homes’ new development The Stage”:

Galliard Homes has launched its latest development venture of the site of William Shakespeare’s former theatre The Curtain.

The £750m development of the 2.3 acre site, which is being carried out in a joint venture with Cain Hoy, McCourt, Vanke and The Estate Office Shoreditch, will create a new mixed use space that includes a 37 storey residential tower, comprising 412 apartments and penthouses.

Two office buildings will provide more than 257,000 m2 of “blue chip” commercial spaces, cafes, restaurants and shops.

The aptly-named Stage development will lie on top of the land where Romeo & Juliet and Henry V were first performed, just off Curtain Road in Shoreditch. It has been designed by Perkins & Will, with interiors by Argent Design.

The development is designed around a 1.28-acre public square that will “showcase the sunken remains of Shakespeare’s Tudor theatre”, which was discovered in 2011, Galliard said. There will also be a performing arts pavilion, featuring an existing 19th century railway viaduct, on one side of the new square.

The viaduct will be restored with the historic brick arches accommodating 9,000 sqft of new shops and bars fronting the square and the top of the viaduct landscaped into a park with a tea/coffee house overlooking the square.

Construction is expected to begin in April and is due to be completed in the first quarter of 2019.
