Clyde Street will see two new buildings of 10 and 34 storeys (107.8m), introducing 481 homes and five commercial units (637 sqm) to the site.

This includes 55% affordable housing – 141 Social Rent + 127 Shared Ownership and Private Sale – and is reliant on Homes England grant funding; however, the plans are being brought forward by Clarion Housing Group, the UK's largest affordable housing provider.

A range of one, two and three-bed homes will be created – 168 one, 310 two & 3 three beds; 2-5 persons – with both builds connected via a single-storey ‘pavilion’ link.

There will be a range of internal amenities, as well as new areas of public realm, a 31st-floor roof terrace, and a communal courtyard with pocket woodlands, 45 new trees, and areas to play, grow plants and socialise.

Both builds will be built in a red/orange brickwork palette, with profiled aluminium panels, PPC aluminium metalwork, and pre-cast concrete/ GRC detailing.

With only a handful of car spaces, there will instead be 241 resident cycles (24 short-stay), and 12 spaces for the commercial units.
