INNOVATION Within the design there are a number of exciting and innovative elements including an interactive art wall, a library oratory and a large ‘Meet & Greet’ community table and water feature. There will be play opportunities for all ages spotted throughout the development. A series of bio-diverse solar roofs, private and communal roof terraces round up a sensitive development approach for 51 College Road.
