The regeneration of Maiden Lane effectively completes the original 1970's masterplan of Benson & Forsyth. The scheme provides LB Camden with 273 new homes as well as new retail and workspace. 45% of the new dwellings are for affordable rent.

The design pays homage to the original architecture of the estate. New buildings complement the Corbusian geometry and tight urban grain of the existing, continuing the rectilinear form eastwards. An extended and improved 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 that it deserves.
