Project Background:

MTD Group re-entered the London real estate and property market in June 2013 where it acquired One Crown Place from Sun Street Properties Ltd, a unit of UBS, through a bidding process. In 2015, the Group received unanimous approval from the London Borough of Hackney Planning Committee on its plans to redevelop One Crown Place in London EC2. The development was seen to be providing benefits to Hackney including new jobs and workspaces, additional housing provision including affordable homes as well as creating a brand new destination for this part of London. Global construction firm Mace, began work on site at One Crown Place in April 2018. The first property sales were launched in 2017 and by September 2019, 60% of units had sold.
