This transformative mixed use development brings the potential for regeneration to the site at 241 Green Street, and to Brimsdown. The site is located in predominantly residential surroundings on 3 sides, with a railway and industrial sites to the east. The proposed development brings the site back to largely residential use, providing 148 mixed-tenure flats on the upper levels, at least 50% of which will be affordable, and retaining flexible commercial uses on the ground and first floors.
The site is proposed as 3 main blocks located around a central landscaped open courtyard, entered from the west and allowing afternoon and evening light into this public space. One of the buildings is lower in scale, while the blocks to the east, adjacent to the railway, are taller at 12 and 16 storeys, and assist in protecting the western part of the site from the noise of the railway.
Each flat has a spacious private balcony, and residents can enjoy shared use of two large roof terraces. Many flats, especially at the upper levels, enjoy extensive views. The roofs to all residential blocks are green roofs, and there are PV panels on the roofs to two of the blocks. The elevations are designed in a brickwork palette in complementary colours, and a textured treatment to the ground and first floors.
