Community living set on unique waterfront views
Part of the regeneration of Chatham Docks, we designed and developed two new apartment blocks, comprising of 192 new Private Rented Sector/Build To Rent (PRS/BTR) homes, overlooking the River Medway.
The development positively contributes to a new and attractive waterfront, and with a mix of retail and leisure units, creates a new community hub for Chatham and Gillingham.
Sitting on a former brownfield site, the two buildings are linked by a vibrant and communal roof terrace, bringing together residents from both buildings to relax and connect.
The outdoor space also provides easy access to the ground-floor retail and leisure spaces, which spill out onto the elegant waterfront.
The buildings sit nearby the dockside garden which connects the promenade and the central parkland, offering more space for residents to enjoy time outdoors, at their own pace.
Through precast facade panels, bathroom pods and balcony cassettes, construction time and costs were greatly reduced during the design process, and high-quality standards of design were achieved.
A welcome 412-bed student accommodation, replacing the former, tired industrial structure.
The creation of two new blocks of flats in response to much-needed housing in London, as well as a doctor’s surgery, and community and commercial space.
The new affordable apartments enhance the surrounding public realm, allowing the neighbourhood to flourish.
