MY Construction appointed as main contractor to deliver 469 Bethnal Green Road

Unity Real estate has announced the appointment of MY Construction to deliver the redevelopment of 469 Bethnal Green Road. Following a successful tender, MY was chosen because of its experience in building high quality and complex developments. The main contract was signed today, a major achievement for the project in today’s challenging market. Construction is due to commence on the site in January 2023.

The unique feature of 469 Bethnal Green Road is its combination of modern, cutting-edge architecture which incorporates a unique galvanised steel facade on the upper three floors which are a new construction, combined with the more traditional brick facade of the existing three storey warehouse structure which will be retained.

The 469 Bethnal Green Road development, designed by architects Carmody Groarke, is expected to be completed in Q2 2024.  Carmody Groarke’s previous relevant works include the Anthony Gormley Studio and the Hill House Box.

Once completed, 469 Bethnal Green Road will house 16,000 sqft of high quality and low carbon office space on the upper floors together with 3,000 sqft high quality retail and cafe space on the ground floor.

Unity Real Estate Development Director, Quinton Clarke, said:

“We are very pleased to have appointed MY to deliver this iconic office development in Bethnal Green. This is a major milestone for the project and we are excited to take the first step towards delivering this high quality and low carbon office space”.

Guy Finkelstein, MY’s Construction Director said:

“We’re very pleased to have MY’s role confirmed on the construction of the project. We thank Unity Real Estate for the faith and trust they are placing in us to deliver such a fantastic scheme on their behalf.”

“The project’s unique design will make for a complex construction delivery; particularly the engineering behind the galvanised steel facade.  We look forward to working closely with Unity Real Estate and our supply chain partners to overcome those challenges and deliver a project which will leave a lasting legacy for Bethnal Green.”
