PTE and Groveworld were selected by British Waterways as joint developers for this key waterside site at the junction of Regent’s Canal and City Road Basin following an open competition in 1998. The site adjoins PTE’s own complex in Diespeker Wharf.

The design comprises three linked blocks arranged round a garden courtyard, with PTE’s own building forming the fourth side. Each block has a distinctive character: a curved and sloping ‘crystal’ overhanging the canal; a more protected brick building, topped with double-height penthouses looking south over a park; and a lower rendered wing in Graham Street with glazed undercroft entrance lodge. The scheme has 57 apartments, 12,500 sq ft of offices, associated basement parking and a landscaped courtyard. The development enjoys spectacular views of the canal basin.
