Site area 0.16

Number of homes 85

Overlooking City Road Basin, this development provides 85 homes, commercial studios and a new park. It was cited as an exemplar scheme in the Mayor’s London Housing Strategy – not least for the seamless integration of luxury apartments alongside affordable homes.

With its partner Groveworld, PTE acted as developer and contractor, as well as providing a complete architectural service.

“like the Mayor’s design guide in action”

David Birkbeck, Design for Homes

“Angel Waterside is a truly public-spirited scheme which throws down the gauntlet for the future redevelopment of the City Road Basin by creating a high quality new public space for the benefit of the wider area.”
