Promoting Public Realm in Aldgate

Katherine McCullough, Head of UK Property at Merchant Land has taken the position of co-chair alongside Eco Zhang from local architects Perkins & Will on the Aldgate Connect BID Public Realm Steering Group.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to support Aldgate and the local community as it builds back from COVID and looks to the future and I look forward to working with all the members in the group,” Katherine said.

The group is made up of a diverse range of public and private sector individuals along with local residents based in Aldgate. There are a number of exciting projects on the horizon which include:
• Improving cycling and pedestrian experiences around Aldgate
• Supporting public realm work around Petticoat Lane and Middlesex Street
• City Benches competition in conjunction with the London Festival of Architecture (LFA)

In addition to this Katherine has also joined the Task and Finish group for development on the new masterplan in Aldgate. To learn more about the public steering group and the exciting works planned please visit
