This 130 bedroom development on the site of the former public house generated a substantial planning gain.
Redevelopment of a brown-field site and provision of a new landmark building in this prime location – on the approach to the High Street and opposite the City’s central bus station. This significant multi-storey mixed-use development includes retail space at street level and residential accommodation above.
A mixture of apartment sizes and cluster flats provide 7 floors of flexible accommodation including much sought after student housing within the city centre. The building height steps down the site to reflect the surrounding streetscape. A high quality, thoughtful design achieving efficient use of the site and a rapid construction programme through the use of metframe construction and ensuite pods. The building achieved a BREEAM “Excellent” rating as testimony to its sustainability.
