Mint Street is a new-build development designed by Pitman Tozer Architects for Peabody, providing 67 new homes for rent, shared ownership and private sale. It is one of the first schemes in London to deliver affordable rented housing under the Affordable Rent Model, a Government initiative introduced in 2012. Replacing a single-storey of light industrial units and a car park, the new £11m development is located on a busy urban site alongside a railway viaduct in Bethnal Green, East London. The development creates a new London street, Mint Street, a paved pedestrian route between the overground and underground stations at Bethnal Green. The 7 storey brick building curves in line with the adjacent railway viaduct. Providing well laid out accommodation, the building includes a mix of one, two and three bedroom homes on all levels. It updates the typology of the traditional mansion block, using housing to make city streets for the 21st century.
