Plans from SMMS Developments Ltd for the construction of a mixed used building featuring 159 flats and a ground floor unit have been recommended for approval by Leicester City Council.
The site at 96 Jarrom Street, was recently used for a kitchen business which has now closed.
The proposal for the site would see the existing building demolished and a 5 to 8 storey block of 159 flats, including a small commercial unit at ground floor, constructed. The flats would all be studio flats, varying from 25 sq m to 42.4 sq m. Communal facilities including laundry, lounges, a roof garden and cycle store would be included.
The scheme’s size has been reduced after initial plans proposed a nine storey building comprising of 180 studios, and a discussion of increasing the sizes of flats and the building to eleven storeys.
According a council document the applicant is understood to be working with University Hospitals of Leicester, who have set out their need for accommodation for staff and relatives of patients.
