jonathan smales phoenix project 

Jonathan Smales is a housing developer in addition to being the co-founder and executive chairman of Human Nature, whose new project, The Phoenix, has just won planning permission.

The Phoennix will contain 685 homes deisgned by a range of remarkable architects, who will be using materials such as cross laminated timber and Hempcrete. 

The development will be pretty much vehicle-free, with residents encouraged to make use of a car share scheme, an electric bike service, or a shuttle bus. It will have amenities including a community canteen, event hall, taproom, fitness centre and makers studios. There will be shared courtyards, parks and green corridors to promote communal living and provide habitats for local wildlife.
