We have currently obtained planning permission for the comprehensive and high quality residential led redevelopment of this city centre riverside site comprising both reuse of existing buildings and new-build.
Having secured this, we are now seeking to add further value through an alternative comprehensive demolition and redevelopment of a student and residential led scheme together with retail, restaurants and cafés, and an exciting riverside public realm.
We aim to open up and regenerate this key city centre brownfield site in order to create a highly desirable place to live and study, and for the public to enjoy.
We are actively working with our professional team to develop the design and submit a full planning application in the near future.
Interestingly, the site was the location of the UK’s first commercial water source heat pump, installed in the River Wensum in the 1940s, which we propose to reinstate in modern form to provide highly efficient renewable energy to heat and cool the buildings as part of our sustainability strategy.
