Building by numbers
St George was granted planning permission to transform the disused wharves in 2014. 1,800 homes will be delivered, including 486 affordable homes. The plot has 210,000 sq ft for commercial space. Six acres of public open space will include a new civic square. There are also plans for a six-form-entry secondary school and sixth form college for 1,200 pupils. A fifth of the construction workers are from the local community. There are 30 local residents working on site as apprentices.
