Beautiful flats designed for university staff and graduate students. There is also a nursery located in between the two middle blocks. This is the northern half of the development, the southern half is totally residential. The two residences surround a square which, for now at least, is used for car parking.

For many years the site was an academic ghetto, with the Cavendish Laboratory being the main department located here. Now the city and university have decided to create this residential ghetto next to the academic ghetto. Hopefully in time it will start to look more like a community.
