The Island Point community will be centred on a new south-facing linear garden square, with each surrounding unit featuring a private balcony, terrace or garden. Residents will also enjoy a variety of additional outdoor spaces including a new mews play street and two communal parks, designed to be used by children and adults of all ages. A new community pavilion will be located at the centre of the site for use by both residents and local community groups.
