Tide and its design partner, HTA Design, have gotten the green light to start developing Tide’s co-living scheme, The Castle.

The project will create 460 homes and will be located in the Old Oak and Park Royal Opportunity Area. 

The firm will be working with its sister company, Vision Modular Systems, and will be using a volumetric modular building technique for the project, cutting construction time to 18 months. 

The law firm, Dentons, advised Tide on the planning application for the scheme. 

Inside the job 

The Castle will have the appearance of two towers, one terracotta section standing at 27 storeys, and one section featuring off-white cladding solution standing at 32-storeys, according to Construction Enquirer. 

The scheme will also include: 

  • An almost 1,500 sqm communal space across four floors. 
  • Two-level basement 
  • Lounge areas. 
  • Private dining and co-working spaces.
  • Entertainment areas. 
  • Cycle parking spaces and a cycle hiring scheme available for residents.

Full scope 

Tide has 3,500 homes currently in construction, and recently completed ‘the Enclave: Croydon’, which saw the construction of 817 homes.

Other volumetric projects the firm has delivered include the Ten Degrees in Croydon, Lewisham Exchange, and Mapleton Crescent, Wandsworth.

“The Castle is another step forward for Tide in demonstrating how volumetric construction can deliver the housing London needs in a safe, sustainable, and efficient way,” said Christy Hayes, chief executive of Tide Construction. 

Tide Construction was approached for further information.
