The development

Maker's Yard will revitalise the area with 551 apartments, ground-level commercial uses, amenities, and new pedestrian routes, across six new buildings.

Expanding the city core further outwards, the project has been brought forward by Watkin Jones, and is being forward funded and will be operated by Get Living, the UK’s pioneer of large-scale BTR neighbourhoods.

Located next to Smithfield, a fab selection of one, two & three-bedroomed homes, of which 47 will be affordable, will be created alongside circa 16,5000K SF of vibrant forward-facing ground floor commercial, within buildings ranging from five, nine, 10, 11, 13 & 30-storeys.

Facilities include a 24-hour concierge, wellbeing hub(s), landscaped podiums, 608 bicycle spaces, 44 car/disabled spaces, a gym, co-working spaces, and a double-height reception and sky lounge. A new pedestrian-friendly public square will also be formulated to seamlessly link the site to the city centre & the burgeoning Rea Valley Urban Quarter.
