North Quay - the centrepiece to the transformation of Hayle Harbour, in Cornwall - has been shortlisted in the Housing Design Awards 2020.
Work got under way earlier this year on the scheme to create an exciting and vibrant new coastal quarter featuring beautifully designed homes, new shops and open spaces, all set within a stunning waterside location just yards from the magnificent Hayle Towans Beaches.
The scheme, designed by internationally renowned architects and urban designers Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, has been shortlisted in the project category in the Housing Design Awards 2020. The Housing Design Awards were launched in 1948 and are the most prestigious awards in the sector recognising the very best in UK housing.
The development is being built by Corinthian Homes (part of the Corinthian Homes Group).
Simon Wright, CEO of Corinthian Homes Group, said: “Our aim from the outset has been to deliver a high quality project which greatly enhances the local area and its economy, protects and promotes its heritage and puts Hayle Harbour on the map as a desirable residential, visitor, business and investment destination.
“It is great to see North Quay shortlisted alongside some of the best schemes in the country. This early recognition of what we are trying to achieve here is a tribute to the inspiration, innovation and hard work of the entire project team and in particular that of our architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.”
Once complete, North Quay will become a focal point for further phases of the regeneration and a destination in its own right, for people living and working locally or enjoying a visit to Hayle, its near neighbour St Ives and wider West Cornwall.
North Quay is set amongst the striking scenery of the Hayle Estuary and within the boundaries of the Hayle Conservation Area and The UNESCO World Heritage Site for Cornwall and Devon.
It will feature approximately 140 properties over 11 buildings, including 17 three bedroom wharf style houses and one, two and three bedroom apartments, many with views over the Hayle estuary and beyond. More than 30 per cent of released properties were sold at launch (March 21/22) as buyers had the first opportunity to secure a home in the first phase of the North Quay scheme.
Phase 1 also includes the development of North Quay Square, which will host events all year round, and some 20 retail units for offices, shops and restaurants, creating a bustling café culture.
Public access to the beach will be maintained for all to enjoy and there will also be new car parking facilities at North Quay, a variety of attractive and well-connected pedestrian-friendly streets and seating areas incorporated into key locations along the wharf.
The results of the Housing Design Awards 2020 will be announced at an awards ceremony on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.
