New homes for Barking
The phase is split into five blocks consisting of 11 new buildings ranging from 4 to 14 storeys which frame a 5,000 sqm park at the heart of the scheme. High quality urban amenity spaces are linked by a green corridor running from North to South of the site enhancing the identity of the Estate. The two main blocks both frame large podium-level shared gardens promoting permeability across the site and social interaction between residents.
The aim is to deliver well-planned, high quality apartments for different sized households from singles through to families. The development features 526 Scandinavian-style family apartments, 65% of which will be affordable rent or shared ownership and 35% for private sale. All will have private amenity space in the form of a balcony, terrace or garden and most will also have access to some form of communal amenity and garden space.
