Cole Waterhouse – EDA – Erie Dock Apartments

Located on a true ‘gateway’ site marking the entry to Salford Quays, Eda (Erie Dock Apartments) is a 29-storey residential tower, designed by Chapman Taylor, which comprises 290 build-to-rent apartments in a range of 1-bed, 2-bed and 3-bed configurations, complemented by a generous amount of amenity space for residents.

Get Living – Portlands Place

Plot N06 is the latest addition to Get Living’s East Village build-to-rent redevelopment of the 2012 Olympic Athletes’ Village. It provides 524 homes across two towers of 31 and 26 storeys, linked together with a double height skybridge, which contains the main communal amenity and rooftop terraces overlooking the Olympic Park to the west.

Great Places Housing Group – Bowland House

Bowland House is one of the first three high-rise blocks to have ever been built in Blackburn and it has dominated the skyline since the mid 1960’s. The high-rise building was in desperate need of an update, bringing the building up to current energy efficiency and fire standards for the occupiers. Team effort from multiple parties has resulted in a successful and attractive finished project.

Legal & General – Longley Place

The former Longley Industrial Estate provides a new architectural typology for the build-to-rent sector; a multi-use building comprising 209 BTR apartments, also known as York & Elder, alongside 33,000 sq ft of co-working office space which supports Brighton’s creative community. Achieving BREEAM Excellent and residential HQM Level 4, Longley Place offers excellent resident amenities, including three rooftop gardens, a gym, lounge areas and a private dining room.

Stanhope & Mitsibushi Estate – 8 Bishopsgate

8 Bishopsgate is characterised by its attention to detail, holistic approach to sustainability, and rigorous integration of structure and services into the overarching architectural vision. Conceptually, the building challenges the traditional tower by breaking the massing into smaller blocks, allowing the tower form to address the site constraints and bring human scale to the building.
