The development consists of new commercial office space, refurbished and repurposed grade II almshouses, and a new public space that focuses on an outdoor stage. The repurposing of the almshouses as an educational resource for literacy is both charming and inspiring. It is a sensitive conservation and repurposing of a modest but beautiful building that will surely have a powerful impact on all that visit for years to come.
