Seven, new buildings, ranging in height from eight to forty two storeys, will deliver over 900 new homes of mixed tenure, including private, affordable and PRS units to be operated by Greystar.
A mix of one, two, three and four bed homes will be provided together with extensive ground floor, public open space, retail, leisure facilities and a dedicated community facility.
The centrepiece of the development is defined by a 42 storey, ‘Maine Tower,’ which acts as a marker building and creates the ‘front door’ to the remainder of the development. The building is broken up vertically into eight storey segments, made up of four storey ‘pods’; inspired by the organic but structured form of a wheat stalk (a reference to grain that was historically stored on the site). The pods alternate in response to the floor plans, creating articulation to the façades.
The project was taken from inception and feasibility, through planning and production information and is currently under construction with delivery in the BIM environment.
