Clarnico Quay is a temporary development near the Copper Box Arena in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.


Building of new homes at East Wick and Sweetwater is now under way – but not all planned sites are needed straight away. The London Legacy Development Corporation and the East Wick and Sweetwater developers (Balfour Beatty and Places for People) are working with social impact company Make Shift to use one of these sites for a variety of workspace, employment, cultural and community uses that reflect the needs of local people and businesses.


The uses of the site have been developed in consultation with the surrounding communities – particularly those in Hackney Wick – and it is part of the wider strategy to support local employment, enterprise and new exciting public spaces in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the Hackney Wick area.


Clarnico Quay is now under construction, and it is due to open to the public in spring 2020. For more information – including how to register for spaces and membership – visit the Clarnico Quay website.
