Detailed proposals were developed in the Smith’s Dock masterplan to bring pockets of residential, commercial, green and public spaces to the area “bringing the entire site back to life by opening up the waterfront and the site for the first time. A decision was made to retain three original dock inlets as a focal point of the plans“ an ongoing symbol to the site’s heritage. Each Fab house also benefits from outdoor amenity space with semi-private front gardens (28 sq.m) and private rear gardens (34 sq. m).
The Plateau is part of the wider Smith’s Dock masterplan by developers Smith’s Dock LLP (Places for People and Urban Splash). The Fab House development is a terrace of ten, which sits in the same neighbourhood as a crescent of Townhouses on the Plateau.
Key components of the overall masterplan include more than 800 homes of mixed tenure ‘ensuring that upon completion, a range of people can live there’ as well as vast places to play, meaning anyone can find somewhere to be outside and enjoy life at Smith’s Dock.
