Eastside Locks


Eastside Locks is an urban business park distinct from other higher density schemes benefiting from both water and park-side frontages. The scheme will create a vibrant new quarter with retail, leisure, learning, living and business all working together to form a new community. Stunning landscaping forms an integral part of the design with the canal establishing a unique waterfront destination within close proximity of the proposed terminus station for the High Speed Rail Line.
