Neighbourhood News Update: 16 February 2024


In December, we introduced our waste-to-wonder furniture collection, which focuses on turning plastic waste into stylish pieces. This was a collaboration with industrial designers, Pedersen + Lennard, aiming to establish a circular economy by upcycling plastic waste from our very own waste facilities.

Made from durable sustainable steel and recycled plastics, crafted through eco-friendly processes, these pieces include tables and seating options for visitors to unwind, grab a quick bite, or simply take a moment to enjoy what our neighbourhood has to offer. Find them at our common areas, at The Alfred & UCB Plaza near the Union Castle Building.
