Plans revealed for new apartments near Nottingham railway station

Crocus Mills

Plans have been revealed to turn a group of vacant industrial buildings near Nottingham Railway Station into a new residential development.

Kelham Developments wants to regenerate Crocus Mills on Crocus Street on the southern entrance into Nottingham city centre into a 32 apartments.

The developer says the buildings have been vacant for several years, but may have been used as storage during the construction of the nearby Picture Works scheme.

The buildings are arranged around a courtyard and Kelham Developments says it would build a new glazed entrance block to serve the flats, which will be spread across three blocks.

A statement from Zenith Planning and Design Consultants said: “The proposal will fulfil an economic role by bringing about the repair and re-use of a vacant building on a brownfield site and by providing employment during the construction phase.

“It will fulfil an economic and social role by providing accommodation for residents who will then make use of city centre facilities. It will [also] fulfil an environmental role by improving the appearance of a badly neglected building.”
