It also sees the Erection of a new single storey community building on the northern part of the site which will provide a new home for Dockland Settlements No.4 and the Odessa Street Youth Centre and consists of a general use hall, meeting spaces and sports facilities, and a new flood-lit external sports pitch.

External spaces include private gardens, terraces and balconies for the residents including a children’s play area, a new sports pitch and community gardens managed by the Dockland Settlements Charity.

Brown Roofs and flow control and attenuation tanks were also used to reduce the rate and volume of surface water run-off to the below ground drainage system.
