An exciting mixed-use, high density (90 units) residential development in Dover, this SEEDA-commissioned project aims to catalyse local regeneration by creating a vibrant, sustainable development that brings together fragmented communities.
Located on the River Dour, the mixed-use scheme provides a total of 345 dwellings including 30% affordable accommodation, a nursing home, a healthy living centre, a bar, a restaurant and a convenience store. The dwelling range from 1-bed flats through family houses up to penthouse apartments which overlook the river. The scheme will achieve code level 4 for sustainable homes, and is to incorporate features such as photovoltaic panels, underfloor heating, rainwater recycling and EVT breathable construction methods as part of the scheme's ambition to achieve an 'Excellent' BREEAM Eco-Homes rating (or equivalent Code for Sustainable Homes level). The design was reviewed by the South-East Regional Design Panel (SERDP), who described it as "potentially one of the best SEEDA-commissioned projects to date".
