Nottingham’s Station Street scheme recommended for approval

Plans for a huge mixed-use development next to Nottingham’s railway station are likely to get the green light at the next planning meeting as Nottingham City Council’s Planning Chief has recommended the project for approval.

As Business Link revealed, in May, urban developer Bildurn moved a step closer to delivering their new mixed-use development on Station Street in Nottingham, signing an agreement with Vita Group, bringing forward the residential element of their mixed-use development next to the station.

The project which faces the new pedestrianised area on Station Street will offer secure basement parking and cycle storage, 24-hour access, electric car charging points and high quality contemporary finishes as well as backing on to a waterway aspect. The building will also feature a roof garden – which would be one of Nottingham’s first dedicated office developments to offer a terrace for employees overlooking the city.

The residential phase is planned to start in September of this year, followed by the construction of the office block next door at No.11 said Sean Akins, Managing Director at Bildurn, in May.

Tim Witt, Development Manager at Vita Group, added: “We’re very pleased to be part of this exciting development for Nottingham. Vita Group’s ethos is all about our commitment to creating connected communities, innovatively bringing together work, leisure and living. We’ve done extensive research about this prime location in Nottingham city centre and concluded it fits perfectly with our aspirations as a business to develop trusted and respected communities, bringing vitality and vibrancy to the area.”
