Social housing block containing 26 flats with elevations made almost entirely from brick

The block extends the edge of an existing urban block to help strengthen the poorly defined open space to the front by creating an ensemble of key buildings with the historic Co-operative headquarters and the Council Offices opposite.

The building contains 26 one and two bedroom flats, the majority of which have a double aspect, spread across the building which rises from three stories, next to the adjoining building, to six storeys.

A roof garden on top of the three story block is accessible to all residents and the block sits above a basement carpark.
