Planning application submitted for Grade A office space in Nottingham’s Southside area

A planning application for a new 7 storey, 1,000 desk Grade A office block in the Southside area of Nottingham city centre has been submitted.

The initial proposal for the new site was announced at MIPIM as another next step in the regeneration of Nottingham’s Southside area. The proposal by Nottingham City Council will transform the Crocus Place site on the south east junction of Arkwright Street and Crocus Street. The site was used as a base of operations for the NET lines 2 and 3 construction and now sits in a key location for office space in the city.

The planning submission for Crocus Place is the latest proposal for Grade A office space in the Southside area, along with Unity Square, Station Street and City Buildings all due to start on site in 2019.

This growing area of the city has already seen development of intu Broadmarsh, Nottingham Castle and Nottingham College’s City Hub begin, with a new Broadmarsh Car Park, Bus Station and Central Library, and new pedestrianised spaces on Collin Street and northern Carrington Street due to begin soon, bringing jobs, economic growth and more visitors to the city.

The development would provide over 125,000 sq. ft. of office space across a number of floors, close to the train station and tram stop and close to the city centre. The modern design respects the building’s location near the historic Nottingham Station and new more modern Unity Square development, with proposals include a glass frontage around one side of the building, and the other side a combination of brick and glass offers a striking and stylish look to the building.

If planning approval was received, construction would begin in Autumn 2019 with the building opening in Spring 2021.

Councillor Jon Collins, Leader of the City Council, said: “We know there is a desire for more top quality office space to bring more jobs and employees to the city and hopefully from across the Midlands. Our proposed transformation of Crocus Place will add to what is being offered by Unity Square, City Buildings and Bildurn on Station Street and create a busy office quarter of the city, creating an attractive new addition to the area.

“We are confident that this new development will be a great success and addition to the Nottingham landscape.”

Jon Crabb, associate partner at Franklin Ellis Architects, which designed the build, said: “We’re very excited to be a part of the redevelopment of the Southside area and help create much-needed office space in one of Nottingham’s most prominent locations.

“Having worked in the city for more than 25 years, we have become experts in combining modern with traditional in order to enhance the local heritage while also creating stylish developments.

“Our designs for this scheme include a combination of glass and brick to do just that, and we look forward to working with Nottingham City Council and seeing this high-profile scheme progress.”
