BL-NK, a 3,200 square foot space for the creative business community opens today.
Following on from Hackney House in Shoreditch High Street, BL-NK is a new initiative by Hackney Council aimed at encouraging inward investment into the borough.
Open for one year only
Created by Hackney Council’s Regeneration team, BL-NK has been backed by private sponsors with supporting partners including the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A).
The space includes a cafe, meeting places and lunchtime street food in the forecourt garden.
Guy Nicholson, Hackney Council’s cabinet member for Regeneration said:
“This collaboration is expanding our reputation as a community of innovators and entrepreneurs both nationally and internationally, as well as enabling investment and creating local jobs”.
Future events confirmed include Social Media Week, Silicon Drinkabout and Internet Week.
