Whitechapel Civic Centre, London – Projects
- Community & Public
- Allford Hall Monaghan Morris
- London Borough of Tower Hamlets
Working with Allford Hall Monaghan Morris to transform the old Royal London Hospital into a new Town Hall.
Founded in 1740, the hospital was home to Joseph Merrick – also known as the Elephant Man – who lived there until his death in 1890.
Planned to complete in 2021, the scheme will create a new ‘civic centre’ for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets inside the Grade II-listed landmark on Whitechapel Road. The proposed civic centre is part of a masterplan drawn up by BDP for the area which will see a new Crossrail station open in 2018.
