This scheme is located on the former cattle market site close to the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon. Known as Arden Quarter it provides high quality intergenerational town centre living, creating a new identity for this important site on the edge of this historic market town.

Mixed-tenure accommodation delivers 29 new houses, 58 general needs apartments, 102 extra care apartments and an element of retail space. The higher density extra care accommodation is located to the southern edge of the site presenting a series of striking gable forms to the Alcester Road frontage. There is a transition in scale towards the northern part of the site where two and three storey houses are arranged in streets with a charming new mews created in place of this previously redundant part of the site.

The landscape design creates a delightful new public realm which includes a pocket park adjacent to the main entrance, a community play space, public café terraces and beautiful private gardens as well as a roof terrace to the extra care building.
