St Clement’s Hospital is a former workhouse infirmary in Bow, East London.
The 4.5 acre site, with nineteen buildings of varying age and quality, has been derelict since 2005. In 2012, the Mayor of London decided to establish London’s first ever Community Land Trust on the St Clement’s Hospital site.
This innovative housing scheme has the local community at the heart of it and is delivering permanently low cost homes and creating jobs.
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
Galliford Try and Linden Homes, with JTP as architect and masterplanner, were selected as the Greater London Authority’s Development Partner to deliver the redevelopment of St Clement’s Hospital.
Upon appointment, ‘Creating a New Vision for St Clement’s Hospital Community Planning Workshops’ were held over two days at Bow Methodist Church, a well known local community space, located near to the site. Over 350 local people took part and were given the opportunity to help develop design solutions for the future of the site.
