A large open space in front of the building forms a green square which helps to redefine the urban fabric and provides an environment for neighbours readily to connect. Additional life is brought by the commercial element in the scheme. Each unit contains private amenity space with extensive gardens for the large family units. The project also includes a managed terrace garden for residents.
The site has a complex and extensive planning history. As a result pre-application advice was sought via a PPA agreement at an early stage. This advice helped drive key elements of the scheme. Planning was registered May 2018 with consent granted by Committee December 2018. The scheme maximises the opportunity to improve upon previous proposals and unlocks its potential by enlarging the massing and adding a well-lit, basement delivering 19 new homes (an additional 11 to the 8 previously consented) and 855 square metres of commercial space.
