canal district: foundations laid
The variety of existing built forms making up this heterogeneous city block explains why excavations and foundations are currently undertaken with such care. Pollution on site has already been dealt with, so the underground parking will begin to take form soon. Work should finish before end 2016, slipping into place amongst a complex network of existing buildings and party walls. The ensemble will provide 206 passive homes in a neighborhood bristling with potential, and luckily still endowed with a peaceful character hard to find elsewhere in the city-centre.
