This seven storey scheme consists of 98 residential homes within a modern crisp symmetrical building with a sloping roof and communal roof terrace.

The lower ground, ground floor and part of the first floor accommodates 26 one and two bed rented flats together with eight rented three and four bed maisonettes. These family units have their own semi-private amenity areas at ground level. The remaining homes are for key workers and shared owners, both for rent and for part-rent/part-sale.

The Scheme

The scheme was developed by Catalyst Housing Group, working closely with Reading Borough Council to ensure it met all the Council and group’s objectives to deliver quality affordable homes for the borough..

The contract value was £11 million and completed in August 2005.
