The scheme comprises of 506 units of premium build-to-rent accommodation, 90 000 square foot of flexible office space, artisan retail, new public gyms and cycle pavilions. This is a scheme that embodies placemaking and public realm at its heart for one of the most prominent BTR owner-operators in the UK.

This project has brought to the fore Jo Cowen’s ability to manage key stakeholders, local opposition and GLA/LA partnering and whilst developing a schematic that achieves optimises efficiency and viability.
