Apartment set out begins for new luxury riverside development in Nottingham
Stephen George + Partners LLP (SGP) has celebrated the start on site of a new £6.5 million 34 apartment luxury residential development for Peter James Homes Ltd, in West Bridgford, Nottingham.
Built on the site of the disused Trentside Social Club, the two buildings of four and six storeys contain luxury apartments ranging from one to three-bedrooms, with every apartment in the main block having views overlooking the River Trent and the grand landscaped Victoria Embankment opposite.
Ian Yallop, Chairman at SGP: “We were appointed by Peter James Homes to take the original plans and rework the internal layouts and external finishes to uplift the consented development in terms of design and quality of materials. We redesigned the main apartment block so every apartment had a river view and chose materials to complement the neighbourhood to settle the development into its context.”
SGP’s design uses contrasting black and cream brick for the main storeys, topped by elegant penthouses clad in dark grey finished steel rainscreen with a simple standing seam. In addition to anchoring the base of the buildings, the darker bricks are used as fine delineation, echoing the seams of the cladding and giving a graceful finish to the exterior. Stylish balconies complement the generous internal spaces.
Concludes Kenny Leadbeater, Associate at SGP’s Leicester office: “This was a further very pleasing scheme to work on with Peter James Homes. It not only spoke to our expertise as delivery architects but also to our design capabilities. With a difficult tendering process, being hiccupped by the recession and Covid 19, the delivery of this project is testament to Peter James Homes resilience and drive to achieve a continued built programme of new housing.”
The project started on site in February 2021 and is expected to complete in April 2022.
