The regeneration of Maiden Lane effectively completes the original 1970s masterplan of Benson & Forsyth. The scheme provides 273 new homes as well as new retail and workspace. The design pays homage to the original architecture of the estate. New buildings complement the Corbusian geometry and tight urban grain, continuing the rectilinear form eastwards. An extended and enhanced network of private and public open spaces has improved permeability and legibility for pedestrians, and the dramatic York Way frontage gives the estate the public face it deserves. Existing community gardens along the southern edge of the site, including a vineyard, were reinstated and a new area for community gardening was created. Landscape design was an integral part of the design and planning of the project from the start of the process.
