Corstorphine & Wright was appointed by GRE Assets as the Executive Architect for Plots 3, 4 & 5 of the former Powergen Site in Victoria Road, Ashford.

The developments consist of 246 apartments in 5 blocks (4-5 storey) with parking to the lower ground floor, and 26 townhouses facing the Great Stour River with associated public realm and infrastructure.

The apartments and townhouses offer contemporary open plan living with balconies overlooking the river and nearby Victoria Park. Surrounded by green space but only a short walk from the town centre, Riverside Park plays a significant role in the regeneration of Kent’s international town.

The former brownfield site is located within a Flood Zone 2 and all the buildings have the ground floor at podium level with walkways at this level served by external stairs, lifts and bridges to interconnect these.

The plots, as part of a wider hybrid application were granted full planning consent in 2016. Corstorphine & Wright was tasked with discharging the Fine Detailing planning condition and detailed design in close consultation with the client and the wider design team to value engineer the project to ensure it met the cost plan constraints throughout the project’s ongoing duration.

Phase 1 which consisted of 66 flats and 8 townhouses was handed over in June 2019 and Phase 2 in 2020, with the final phases due to be completed in 2022.

The apartments and townhouses offer contemporary open plan living with balconies overlooking the river and nearby Victoria Park. Surrounded by green space but only a short walk from the town centre, Riverside Park plays a significant role in the regeneration of Kent’s international town.


As the development has progressed, we have been able to work with the client to adapt the development to the changing requirements and managed this progress through the developed design along with any revised planning applications that have entailed.
