New Cross Central

Creating distinctive and delightful homes

Comprising 80 family homes – all of which are dual aspect at the upper levels – New Cross Central provides an environment which fosters community and the opportunity to feel at home in the city.

Shaped as a courtyard block, the building is defined by a cascade of private roof terraces, all of which have full views across the city.

Townhouses are accessible from the street across all four of the building’s facades, making the building an active presence with the surrounding neighbourhood.

A shared garden provides residents with a private oasis within the city, while small details around the entrances and windows reference the traditional brick colour, tone and texture seen in the New Cross and Ancoats areas.
