Due to its vastly reduced weight, the building is taller than was ever thought feasible on the neglected brownfield site. The distinctly modern residential community makes up a large part of the new streetscape, and responds in scale with varied roof heights, undulating between five and ten storeys, each orientated to maximise daylight to the apartments’ balconies and communal open spaces.
