Parkleys was the first Span development by Eric Lyons, developments we have featured before. But if you missed them, essentially, this was a company that mixed good design and scenery, but with one eye on affordability.  All developments had a modernist outlook, perhaps down to the experience Lyons gained by working with Walter Gropius in his formative years.
