Highly impressive design providing affordable houses and apartments, proving that a degraded local environment does not need to stifle style and ambition.
Despite its challenging location, Cross Street South demonstrates very high standards in design and achieves excellent environmental performance. Dwellings are well laid out and the shared space within the scheme is attractive and functional. The layout, orientation and massing of the built form has created proper street frontages.
Cross Street South begins to repair the damaged urban fabric of the area and should act as a catalyst for wider regeneration, helping to boost confidence for local people, businesses and investors. The stakeholders clearly understood that high quality, sustainable design is necessary to transform an area and residents are highly satisfied.
Cross Street South won a Building for Life Award in 2009.
