A mixed-use, regeneration scheme to transform Harlow town centre. The urban planning is designed to re-activate the town centre, both through the mix of uses and by creating cohesive connections and new routes to unify the heart of the town.
The scheme aims to capture the essence of the original New Town, which was the UK’s first post-war settlement, with a contemporary reinterpretation. The design will create a vibrant new place for people to live, work and shop. An open air boulevard style shopping area alongside a new resident population will bring life to the town centre increasing activity levels throughout the day and into the evening. Substantial landscaped areas for both residents and the public will have appropriate planting to provide habitats for wildlife. New walkways and routes will provide cohesive access to the central shopping area.
Four new buildings ranging in height from three to sixteen storeys will provide 447 residential units, ground level flexible retail floorspace, communal amenity space, pedestrian boulevard and below podium car and cycle parking. The residential units are flexibly designed to be able to incorporate the requirements of BTR. Above the podium, there will be richly landscaped private amenity areas with shared child play-space, incorporated into the design.
