The building mass provides a transition in scale between the neighbouring buildings; high-quality materials are proposed to reflect that of the existing and fluctuating context. A retail unit at street level provides an active frontage, in line with the Eden Quarter Development Brief. The podium allows residents with access to a shared amenity area at the rear of the building. A mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bed apartments, each with a large private balcony, is proposed in compliance with the London Plan and Lifetime Homes requirements.

“The Eden Quarter should help to deliver a significant number of new homes for Kingston as required in the London Plan, helping to keep the town centre active and busy during the day and evenings.”
