Residential scheme along side the A13 that contains 271 home in three blocks on a wedge shaped site

The project contains 93 private homes in the 21-storey Block A tower, 75 rental apartments for young professionals in Block C on the development’s opposite side and 103 affordable units with external deck access in Block B between them.

The ground floor of the building contains 22,000sq ft of commercial space.

The development is built to Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes and all flats benefit from the CHP system. There’s LED lighting throughout, brown and green roofs promoting biodiversity, on-site composting, low water consumption appliance specification, recycled rubble from a nearby site used in the eco-garden construction, energy from 20 per cent renewable sources and east-west orientation of the blocks, which optimises heat loss and gain.
