    66 Buttesland Street was built in 1895 as a stable, and was described in the Shoreditch Observer as a ‘large fine depot, a substantial and serviceable building with healthy and comfortable accommodation for 180 horses’. It sits behind a row of houses on Buttesland Street, all constructed between 1810-35.

    The premises, known as the Pitfield Street Depot, was built by G Parker of Peckham, with steelwork by Newton Chambers Co, and opened in December 1895. In the early part of the 20th Century, motor power began to overtake horsepower, and the last LGOC horse-drawn omnibus ran on 18 October 1911.

    The LGOC sold the leasehold of most of the site to the Eastern Motor Wagon Company, which made it its headquarters and whose fleet of 31 steam lorries undertook local haulage work.

    The premises was acquired in the early 1930s by Cromer Cars, who made further changes to the former covered yard, inserting the concrete mezzanine gallery which was originally fitted with a gantry and overhead travelling crane. Since 1965 the premises has been occupied by the current tenant, Wharfside furniture company.

    Characterised by its attractive warehouse style buildings and vibrant cultural atmosphere, Hoxton, has over recent years become increasingly fashionable to both occupiers and investors alike. The sub-market has become synonymous with the rapidly expanding Tech, Fin-Tech and Design industries.

    The area constantly evolves and breaks boundaries with new emerging food trends, a growing number of boutique retail brands, a cutting edge arts scene and an overwhelming choice of cocktail bars, cafes, pubs and pop up events spaces. It is easy to see why the area continues to attract forward-thinking businesses who are drawn to the amenity offering as well as the creative environment.
