Today's xsite is Anna...

We are very pleased to announce that Bohouse, our Live Work scheme in Middlesbrough, has been shortlisted for the Building Awards 2011. We are one of five schemes in the 'Housing project of the Year' catagory. The awards take place on the 7th April at The Grosvenor House in London.

Bohouse is a scheme of 20no. Live/Work apartments for rent just north of Middlesbrough Railway Station and is the second building in the emerging regeneration led Bohozone.  This area is adjacent to the Middlehaven land masterplanned by Alsop some years ago and has made a mark on the new economy of the town by colocating a digital business acceleration centre, Boho One with Platform Arts, artists’ studios and workshops with plans for further buildings generating new businesses and employment in the digital media and technology sector.  Bohouse is the key residential 24 hour constituent part of this plan.
