Some 136 homes have been built in the second phase of this housing and mixed-use project, 40% of them tenure blind.  Landscaped lanes help form a variety of shared green spaces between the terraces. The houses are of  a courtyard type, providing solid street frontages and private walled gardens. There are also back-to-back houses fronting mews-like streets. Houses at the centre of the development are brick, while those on the fringes have  black-stained timber cladding and pitched roofing.
