Plans for major city centre mixed-use scheme revealed

How the scheme would have looked

Plans to develop a mixed-use scheme in the heart of Nottingham have been revealed.

Crowndale Properties wants to demolish buildings on Thurland Street in the city and turn the upper floors into student accommodation while improving shop fronts on the ground floor.

The developer is planning 42 one-bedroom and studio apartments on the upper floor of the building.

An underground car park, which has been out of use for some time, will also be brought back into use for residents.

The upper floors of the building are currently used as a place of worship and associated hostel.

A statement by the developer said: “The site is located close to Trent University campus (less than 400m) and within an ‘active’ area that is attractive to students and young people. The building had not been an attractive location or form for office use for some years due to low ceilings heights, difficult car parking, difficulties with IT integration, etc.

“The form of the development is for self-contained serviced apartment units that could, if necessary, be let on the non-student market without alteration.”
