The development of the former Vaux Brewery site which has been empty since the brewery was closed in 1999 and ultimately demolished in 2003. The site sits on the edge of the city centre and was part of a wider regeneration project which covers 5.80 hectares.

The building had approximately 188,000ft2 of internal floor area over 8-storeys which was mainly office space, together with ancillary accommodation over two identified plots within the original masterplan.
