This project forms part of 7N’s award winning masterplan for the wider regeneration of the area, delivering 434 new homes within a new, mixed use, canalside quarter. The residential buildings have been specifically designed for rent, comprising a mix of private rental and tenure blind affordable homes, which remain equally suited to other tenures. These detailed proposals continue the placemaking approach of the masterplan, creating an environment where residents feel that they are the occupants of not just of their own homes, but of the buildings, shared spaces and wider public realm. The pedestrian friendly environment, with an active frontage of cafes, restaurants and shops, will reinvigorate the canalside, creating a vibrant new place where there has been a void in the city for many years.
