Cambridge Road Major Residential Scheme
Bowman Riley is leading the design delivery of two apartment buildings as part of a major new residential development on Cambridge Road in Kingston.
The local authority identified that the current housing stock would not be able to cope with the population growth that Kingston will see over the next few decades. The new development will replace a 1960s housing estate following the compulsory purchase of the nine-hectare site.
The Cambridge Road development will create a vibrant and safe neighbourhood that provides local people with high quality yet affordable and energy-efficient new homes that are the right size for their families. The overarching aim is to deliver social, economic and environmental improvements to the area to deliver comprehensive regeneration.
In phase one, we are delivering the design of two residential buildings containing 250 apartments. The proposals will reconnect the site with the broader community by transforming the neighbourhood with high quality and modern urban design.
The development will exceed the whole lifecycle carbon benchmark, through sustainable design and efficient detailed space planning that incorporates structural and MEP proposals.
Urban greening, green roofs, soft landscaping, and a podium garden will all feature in the development promoting biodiversity and sustainable urban drainage.
