Two projects we designed on behalf of developer West Tree Estates are for a row of townhouses on Rosebery Street and a mixed-use development comprising supported living apartments and commercial space at Boaler Street.
The latter project (image top) will see disused premises demolished and replaced by a four-storey building containing 34 self-contained apartments. The aim is for these to be managed and operated by Croft Housing Association for tenants who have been assessed as being ready to live independently having already gone through an initial support period of two years with Croft Housing.
Croft Housing Association will use the ground floor commercial space as their offices.
‘The site is in need of investment and redevelopment and the ground floor includes new commercial space with an active frontage, maintaining the rhythm of commercial development along Boaler Street,’
said Adam Hall (Managing Director of Falconer Chester Hall).
On Rosebery Street, West Tree Estates will be building a modern terrace of 11 four-storey townhouses on a vacant site that has been cleared since the riots of the early 1980s. The developer intends to provide accommodation that is attractive to families and help continue the renaissance of the area stimulated by the good work of local residents and community groups.
‘The architectural language has been inspired by the Victorian architecture of the Granby area, highlighting elements characteristic of the area including buff brick, large windows and ornamental detail,’
said Mr Hall.
