Plans approved for Nottingham apartments
Nottingham City Council has approved our plans for 85 PRS apartments on a landmark site below the famous Lacemarket.
The site has lain empty for decades, as developers, planners and architects have been unable to develop an acceptable and viable scheme for what is one of the most historically sensitive areas of the city.
The new apartments will be organised in two volumes, both of which reference Lacemarket’s heritage in their design. The lower volume is predominantly brick and sandstone, stepping in plan and section, while the taller volume will be glazed and wrapped in a patterned metal lace lattice that varies in transparency.
Although PRS schemes are appearing in the other UK cities, this will be the first of its kind in Nottingham, and it has the potential to be a significant step forward for Nottingham’s private rental market, encouraging young professionals to live in high quality apartments in the city centre.
