Maker's Yard is transforming Sherlock Street with 551 build-to-rent apartments, commercial units, amenities aplenty, and fluid new pedestrian links.

We've been busy snapping Maker's Yard over the past few months – and it is looking exceptional.

Expanding the city core further outwards, Maker's Yard has been brought forward by Watkin Jones – with Get Living, the UK’s pioneer of large-scale build-to-rent communities, forward funding and operating the project.

Sat adjacent to Smithfield, Maker's will deliver – in addition to the new one-, two- & three-bedroom homes, of which 47 will be made affordable – circa 16,5000K SF of ground floor commercial in builds ranging from five, nine, 10, 11, 13 & 30-storeys.

Amenities will include a 24-hour concierge, wellbeing hub(s), landscaped podiums, spaces for 610 cycles, a gym, and co-working spaces, in addition to a double-height reception & sky lounge.

Complementing all of this will be a new public square that will connect the city centre with the emerging Rea Valley Urban Quarter, with fluid access to the commercial spaces that will further boost the area. Looking good!

Watkins Jones Group are behind the plans that will see the underwhelming site transformed with builds ranging from five, nine, ten, 11, 13 & 30 storeys.

The tallest is to become a high-quality new marker building within the emerging Smithfield & Rea Valley Urban neighbourhood

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/Sherlock%20Street%20Artists%20Impressions%20(1).jpg" />

Designed by Glenn Howells Architects, the scheme would feature 228 one-bed, 290 two-bed and 33 three-bed flats (1-5 persons), including 47 affordable rented apartments.

To boost vibrancy, each build will include flexible commercial spaces facing onto their respective streets, with the scheme also providing an array of amenities including a 24/7 concierge, wellbeing hub, lounges, workspaces, two landscaped courtyards, and roof gardens.

A new publicly accessible courtyard will be positioned at ground floor level, enabling a new and attractive public space, and creating a direct pedestrian route from Sherlock Street to the city centre and beyond.

There would be car parking for 36 vehicles – including 8 accessible, and 610 bicycle & motorcycle spaces, available.
