The new scheme comprises a selection of residential units as well as retail and leisure facilities set across two separate buildings and contextualised within high-quality landscaping at a variety of levels.

A key feature of the site is a landscaped ‘street’ at ground level, which divides the two blocks, providing public access to a hard-surfaced garden situated along the riverfront. The larger block surrounds a podium-level courtyard accessible to residents, which provides a generous area of greenery for leisure and relaxation, while rooftop gardens offer oases of calm and unspoilt views of the city.

In terms of superstructure, we proposed RC frames with flat slab floors for both; wherever possible the grid was set to 9 × 7.5 m, adding bespoke variations where required. Where changes to the grid layout were incorporated, transfer structures comprising RC beams were specified.

The site currently houses two large retail structures that previously served various industrial purposes. Due to its proximity to the river, a barrier wall runs along the southern boundary of the site, developed in three separate sections. We proposed a new anchorage system to replace the system beneath the existing buildings. This comprises RC piles at 3 m centres, set within 6 m of the wall in a dedicated access zone.

We considered both raft and piled foundation options, with the ultimate decision informed by intrusive site investigations. Existing foundations will be removed to allow for a deep basement within the new scheme; at this stage bottom-up construction with secant piled retaining walls has been proposed.
