The scheme, developed by build-to-rent developer Grainger, went onsite in 2016 and should be completed by autumn 2018. It is at present one of the largest build-to-rent developments in the UK, and the biggest one out of London.

The site was previously home to a derelict cinema, which was destroyed to build these new apartment blocks. Clippers Quay was seen as an ideal place to build the development due to its connectivity and proximity to Manchester and MediaCityUK.

Once completed, these skyscrapers will be amongst the tallest residential buildings in Western Europe.

South Quay Plaza, designed by the world-famous architects Foster & Partners and developed by Berkeley, will eventually include three towers, the tallest of which will reach a height of just over 214m making it the second tallest residential skyscraper currently proposed for London. The development will also include shops and facilities, and will sit in 2.6 acres of landscaped gardens. It is due to complete by 2020.

The scheme is being built on the former Ferry Lane industrial site by Walthamstow’s High Maynard Reservoir, transforming the existing aging industrial estate into a new modern and lively residential area. Its location near Blackhorse Road tube station, yet right next to the reservoir, makes it ideal for London renters looking for a bit more greenery.

The 2,000 sq m development will comprise of five buildings ranging in height from ten to 16 storeys and housing over 440 apartments and houses, elevated pedestrian walkways, commercial and community space, specialist start-up business units and even a microbrewery!

Dearneside is investing in the future

Article added:

Last month Dearneside purchased a state of the art PythonX robotic CNC plasma cutting system, which is renowned for being “the world’s most productive structural steel fabrication machine”. It’s a combination of advanced CNC robotics and high-definition plasma cutting, equipped with software so sophisticated it programs cuts by itself.

The machine will improve efficiency and standard in our fabrication shop thanks to its high speed precision metal cutting. It is also designed to only use 20% of floor space, compared to traditional fabrication, and takes about 20% of the processing time.

The machine has now been installed and launched ready for 2018.
