LAPRAIK STREET, ASCOT
Multi Unit Development
This site presented multiple challenges for our Team. The large site is perched atop an escarpment in the affluent inner northern suburb of Ascot providing unobstructed city views. However there was only 8 metres of street frontage, little flat development land and adjoining character houses. We were able to achieve a yield of 28 large units – all but 4 with full city views. To limit the number of storeys above ground, part of the building is set into the ground while other parts dramatically cantilever over the escarpment – requiring close co-ordination with the structural, civil and soil engineers at the early design stage.
