Liz Lake Associates was commissioned by Taylor Wimpey to redesign this strategic site on the banks of the River Usk for high-quality apartments. The site is a landmark site in Newport which has received significant funding in the past decade with major redevelopment and improvement works.
The landscape architecture team at Liz Lake Associates designed a tree-lined boulevard link which connects the site to the proposed Rodney Parade development to the rear. Adjacent to a footbridge landing, a new plaza was designed which creates an exciting urban environment with bars and restaurants and a variety of dwelling types.
Working closely with the Welsh Assembly, Newport Planning Authority and Newport Regeneration Company, a scheme was designed which satisfies all stakeholders aspirations as well as achieving a landmark scheme for Newport.
