This is the second submitted scheme for the Arundel Street site that we’ve designed for Logik Developments. The revised scheme comprises three distinct parts: an orthogonal U-shaped component edging the street block and rising to 8, 9 and 11 storeys around a courtyard, a taller element at 23 storeys and the retained and restored historic Department of Transport (DOT) Motorcycle building at 4 storeys. The development delivers 355 new homes in a range of 1, 2 and 3 bed apartments, along with three expansive residents’ roof top terraces, commercial/retail space, courtyard parking, cycle storage and upgraded public realm.
With the plans approved by twelve votes for and two against, Councillors agreed that we had listened and responded to all comments and wanted to “credit the work put into the revised proposal.”
We greatly enjoyed the process of consultation and design development explored with the Britannia Basin Community Forum. The outcome is a proposed built form, landscape and pedestrian experience which we believe will contribute positively to both the local area together with the wider city context.
