The project will deliver over 600 homes as well as a range of other uses as part of a new urban quarter. Central to the project is the creation of an active public realm, connecting the site with its wider context and activated by a mix of ground floor uses. The scheme will deliver a major new public space supporting a rich mix of activities throughout the day.
The new buildings have been designed to positively respond to the warehouse buildings of the site’s east end context. A carefully managed massing strategy maximises daylight to new homes and public spaces whilst ensuring new buildings contribute to the city’s wider townscape.
