Derwent London is bringing forward plans to redevelop 162 City Road, the current Moorfields Eye Hospital (Moorfields) and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (IoO) sites.

Moorfields Eye Hospital, UCL IoO and Moorfields Eye Charity are working in partnership on Oriel, a joint initiative which will move services to a new, integrated centre on part of the St Pancras Hospital site in Camden.

In Summer 2022, we presented our early vision for the site. Thank you to everyone who gave their feedback, your comments have helped form our detailed design of the scheme and will continue to shape our plans as they progress.

Since our last round of consultation, we have been developing our plans for 162 City Road and we’re now excited to share our progress.

Our vision for the site is to deliver: 

New, contemporary office space, enabled for Life Science, and Research and Development uses, as well as affordable workspace.

Improved connections through the site and an enhanced public realm to benefit local communities.

Publicly accessible uses within the scheme, including retail and a City Room space.

Local employment and training opportunities, both during construction and once the buildings are in operation.

High-quality Net Zero Carbon design which will enhance the heritage character of this important site, and contribute positively to the local area. Sustainability is a key priority.
