Re-Format was commissioned by SEEDA & subsequently by the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA) to masterplan and design the remaining sectors of the East Cowes regeneration area. The accommodation on the sites includes a large four storey mixed-use commercial scheme, a multi-storey public car park and a care home, along with eight large town houses overlooking the Solent.
“Re-Format provided an innovative an cost effective solution to a difficult site at East Cowes. Where it was expected that the consented use would be hard to deliver in difficult market conditions, Re-Format responded to the brief to find an alternative use which made the most of the site’s topography and discharged some difficult planning conditions. A purchaser has now been found, and the scheme coming follows Re-Format’s solution”
