One element of the vision for the site is that it will house an accelerator space for technology startups. The decision to develop an accelerator space on the site was mooted as part of the government's Tech City initiative - a plan announced last year to boost the cluster of digital and technology companies in East London.
"We very much want to see that move on space here," Jules Pipe, mayor of Hackney, said.
The OPLC is also willing to act as a broker for smaller companies which may want office space in the buildings but can't afford to take on a large part of the property themselves.
