The scheme will comprise 256 one bedroom and 128 two bedroom apartments within three towers that will reach to 10, 14 and 16 storeys high. There will also be a ground floor commercial unit, a two-level under croft car park and a shared outdoor space for residents, which will be created via a five, eight and nine-storey raised podium. Large floor to ceiling windows that bring a generous amount of light and stunning views to tenants are one of the key elements of the simple design.
