Homes of the future in the heart of the city

450 inspirational homes for professionals and families. In an exemplary sustainable development, in the middle of the only city centre neighbourhood of its kind in the UK.

The homes will be solar-powered and designed to achieve a minimum of Level 4 under the Code for Sustainable Homes, reducing your impact on the environment. And thanks to the DEC, you’ll benefit from any new energy technologies they test.

Some of the properties will be cutting-edge smart homes. Smart technology means you can run your home from your phone, thanks to the free public WiFi throughout the quarter – from checking what’s in your fridge to preheating your oven.

No matter what, you’ll have easy access to the A1 and A69, respected schools, high quality leisure and social facilities.
