The would-be tenants of the Olympic Park buildings used by the world’s media during the Games are set to unveil their plans for the site to the public for the first time.

The organisation with “preferred bidder” status, iCITY, is hosting a public exhibition and consultation event from Friday, March 15.

The company plans to create a digital hub for technology firms, which is estimated to create 6,500 jobs.

Visitors will be able to see artists’ impressions of how the site will look, as well as have their say on the scheme.

The exhibition is at the Cre8 Lifestyle Centre, Eastway, Hackney Wick, from March 15-16 and at the Hackney Services Centre, Hillman Street, Hackney, from March 18-19.
