Facts

  • The complex was often referred to as 'streets in the sky', mainly because there were decks stretching across each block. From ground level up, the 'streets' were called The Pavement, Gilbert Row, Hague Row, Long Henry Row and Norwich Row.
  • Park Hill Flats is the largest listed building in Europe. It consists of four blocks 13, 10, 9 and 7 storeys, linked at various levels. The entire complex contains 995 residential units, as well as shops and civic amenities.
  • Park Hill Flats formed Part One of the Park Hill scheme. Part Two, also known as the Hyde Park Flats, was built on an adjacent site.
  • The thinking behind Park Hill was heavily influenced by Le Corbusier's Cité Radieuse de Marseille in Marseille. Unlike its French counterpart, Park Hill has remained a social housing complex.
