Atlip Road
Overlooking the Grand Union canal, this mixed use development transforms a disused industrial site into a vibrant waterfront precinct. New canal boat moorings and a public promenade lined by cafes and retail outlets are established to promote waterfront activity and interaction, whilst a mix of affordable, shared ownership and private dwellings are housed within six blocks of varying heights. A new footbridge enables convenient access to Hangar Lane tube station and provides a link to an existing residential development on the opposite bank. The scheme also encourages and ensures biodiversity with inclusion of bird boxes to the building facades, bat boxes under the bridge and ramp structures along with establishment of native shrubs, reed swamp and grassland areas along the water edge.
