These pages attempt to compare the 1960 and the 1988 plans {Plan 1 and Plan 2) analyzing the problems caused by the earlier design and the attempts to correct them in 1988.


The 1970 and the 1988 Plans of the Mozart Estate

Move the mouse over each block of text above to display the two plans.
(There may be a slight delay whilst the second map is being loaded.)

Plan 1 shows six of the 1970s Mozart Estate blocks with a row of lock-up garages along Third Avenue. The original overhead walkway from Dart Street is shown in a dark tint. One of the major problems was that the estate could be entered between any two blocks and used by strangers, some innocent and some not, as a through way in all directions.

The 1988 Plan 2. shows the new internal road between the blocks, the row of four paired gate-house bungalows and the infill sites with their houses.
