PROJECT DESIGN

Part of the Mayor of London masterplan to create affordable housing in central London. 73% of the 153 modular homes will only be offered to first-time buyers who already live and work in the area. The modular apartments will first be manufactured offsite, and this will be one of the tallest developments to date to use this process. Not only will this greatly reduce the level of disturbance to current residents in the area, but it will also improve efficiency in terms of both timing and costs. This offsite construction method is key to making compact home specialists ‘Pocket Living’s’ plan for affordable housing feasible.
