Construction work is expected to get underway on a new Ropewalks apartment scheme within the next two weeks.
Crossfield Construction has been appointed to deliver the £4 million Chavasse Building after the Living Brick Ltd project was granted planning permission.
The 47-apartment development on Lydia Ann Street will take approximately 12 months, with DAY Architectural and Shape Engineering working on the design.
The building, on the corner of Lydia Ann Street and Suffolk Street, will also feature a residents’ gym and a Japanese-inspired ‘Zen’ rooftop garden.
The new residential accommodation will comprise 20 micro apartments, 12 one-bedroom homes and nine two-bedroom properties.
David Cain, director for Crossfield Construction, says: “We are really looking forward to constructing this exciting development for Living Brick in one of the city’s most historic locations. We look forward to a collaborative partnership to deliver exceptional new living environments whilst positively impacting the surrounding community.”
Matthew Quinton, associate at DAY Architectural, adds: “The Chavasse Building will offer exemplar residential accommodation and amenity facilities and will enhance the immediate and wider neighbourhood.
“We are delighted to be involved in the delivery stage of the scheme moving forward.”
