This city-centre development completed in late 2019, delivering much needed range of new apartments and houses that will help meet an increasing housing demand in Oxford. Designed by Hester Architects and constructed by the Mears Group, the scheme is made up of three blocks of apartments and a series of semi-detached and terraced properties.
