Demolition of offices planned for 8-storey 191-apartment block in The Meadows

Plans could be approved at a Nottingham City Council planning meeting next week.

Plans are to demolish a 1970s two-storey empty office building for the apartment block near the junction of Meadows Way and Arkwright Street in Nottingham.

Proposals by developers Rainier state:

‘This brownfield city centre site is located three minutes’ walk from Nottingham train station and is bounded by Crocus Street to the north, Newthorpe Street to the east and Meadows Way to the south.

‘The building is proposed at eight storeys and would include circa 190 new apartments to help meet Nottingham’s housing need. \

‘The mix will be split between one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, which will contribute to the city’s overall housing stock mix and demand for units of this size.

‘The ground floor will include a lobby for residents to access their homes on the first to seventh floors. This will be located on the western side of the building facing Arkwright Street. Residents living on the ground floor will access their apartments directly from street-level, giving Waterway House active frontages on Arkwright Street, Newthorpe Street and Waterway Street.’

Following demolition of the existing building (Waterway House), the proposed development is a single residential block of 191 apartments, which steps down in height from 8 storeys on the frontage to Crocus Street to 3 storeys adjacent to Meadows Way.

It is proposed that the housing mix would be made up of 122 x 1-bed apartments and 69 x 2-bed apartments. The applicant seeks flexibility in respect of the tenure of the residential use (ie. open market and / or build to rent).

Vehicular access into the site would be taken from Crocus Street. 22 car parking spaces and 4 disabled parking spaces, proposed at ground floor level below a podium, are to be available by residents and visitors.

The scheme proposes 191 cycle parking spaces within the cycle store rooms, also at ground floor level. The site would be serviced on-street from Crocus Street.

The scheme is recommended for approval but will be voted on at the planning meeting.
