    Looks like it will be here over from the health food shop – this stretch of road is going to be really built up :-S

  3. Thanks @ewebber I’m surprised that I hadn’t heard of this earlier. Why has, what is supposed to be the \coolest” address in the world whose renaissance has been driven in large part by the influx of “creatives” got virtually no decent modern architecture? Two-tone brick with reconstituted stone banding…well I guess it looks like a Travelodge. I feel like I’m back in Reading circa 1990.”

  4. I don’t particularly object to its size – it’s only 2 storeys higher than the Victorian block immediately to its west – I just wish that Hackney could aspire to a higher standard of architecture. The regeneration of a borough like Hackney gave the opportunity for some really innovative modern architecture that could have put East London on the world design/architecture map. This opportunity has been flushed down the pan.

  5. I agree with @benjamins comments on the look of the building. Also don’t have a problem with it’s height considering its context. However, it’s going to have a terrible impact on the quality of Tyssen Passage as the building completely turns it’s back to it. It’s good that they put the entrance to the resi there as it should provide some activity, but the poor quality frontage caused by the servicing on that edge will create a dangerous alley – not in accordance to Secure by Design.

  6. Does anyone have any update on this? I noticed the signs now say ‘retail space’ instead…

  7. @sunsk8 it looks like the application is still registered, the application says \Erection of a 6 storey plus basement building to provide 2 commercial units” which would explain what you saw”

  8. pants! ;)thanks for replying x

  9. A new planning application has been submitted, only this time it’s for a Premier Inn and not Travelodge;http://idox.hackney.gov.uk/WAM/showCaseFile.do?action=show&appType=Planning&appNumber=2012/1695Room numbers have increased to 90.And here’s a miniscule CGI on the architect’s blog;http://www.dextermoren.com/blog/29-05-12-dalston-premier-inn-submitted-into-planning/

  10. \Travelodge is searching for four new sites to locate its hotels in London Fields Old Street Shoreditch and Hoxton as well as Stoke Newington and Stamford Hill as part of its expansion plans in the capital.”http://www.hackneygazette.co.uk/news/travelodge_sets_its_sights_on_four_new_hackney_sites_1_1983280″

  11. Welcome to ‘Croydon’.

  12. Joke joke joke.. Good old Dalston turning into no-identity town centre..!  I think we scared them boring individuals with our cultural individualism :))

  13. I don’t think premier inn care too much one way or another for ‘our cultural individualsm’ which itself is an oxymoronic statement if ever I saw one!

  14. @BillE8 Most thriving capitals across the world have a good contrast in building types and styles and have mainstream low-budget hotels.Personally, I hope their new east London ones look less like their usual turgid, post-modern, \sympathetic” brick-clad fare and more like their Barking branch;Travelodge Barking
