The scheme delivers a cutting edge master vision for Harlow North. The proposal is viewed as a major catalyst for the renaissance of Harlow, importantly embracing and acknowledging it’s 1950’s New Town legacy, taking great inspiration from the vision leading designers of the day had. A vision based on a pioneering spirit, one striving for a better and changed lifestyle. This idealism is at the cornerstone of what Harlow ‘is’, capturing the ‘essence of the New Town’ and what makes it so special. Harlow is a place of unashamed modernity, variety, a place that takes pride in its public art and water-garden aesthetic. The regeneration boasts 500,000 sq ft of new retail, 450 residential units, new commercial units, leisure, hotel, first class civic buildings including a theatre and library, all striving to exceed the latest sustainability goals. The aim is to build brighter future for Harlow, structured around new parks, squares and lanes.
