Case studies

  • Blackhorse Mills, Walthamstow

    Blackhorse Mills, Walthamstow

    The £240m scheme, located in Walthamstow, north London, overlooks the Walthamstow Wetlands and showcases a pioneering approach to the UK’s Build to Rent sector as one of the largest schemes in the country.

    Comprising 479 apartments, there’s a strong emphasis on the design and integration of various communal areas within the buildings which includes a heated outdoor swimming pool, an extensive gym area, outdoor BBQ and dining areas, private dining rooms, flexible working space, and doorstep play facilities for young children.

    Also includes 20,000 sq ft of commercial accommodation to help to support small to medium sized start-up businesses.

  • Boxmakers Yard, Bristol

    Boxmakers Yard, Bristol

    Situated within 300 metres of Temple Meads train station, the scheme benefits from wider investment into the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, one of the largest urban regeneration projects in the UK.

    Two sites were acquired with a planning consent for 246 apartments. Recognising the size and configuration of the apartments fell well below national space standards, we negotiated with the local planning authority (Bristol City Council) to bring about design changes to increase the density to 376 apartments.

    The scheme was awarded the Best Build to Rent project in the UK, at the WhatHouse? Awards 2021.

  • Slate Yard, Salford

    Slate Yard, Salford

    Our first scheme opened in 2017 and set a new standard for future build-to-rent projects.

    The £100m scheme located in Salford, Greater Manchester is well located on the banks of the River Irwell and opposite Spinningfields, Manchester’s premier office district.

    Designed with residents in mind, the scheme provides 424 homes, work from home space, a gym, free WiFi, gym, car club membership, housekeeping service, and pets are allowed.

  • Mustard Wharf, Leeds
