New plans have been revealed for a hotel and apartments at the former Tresham College site on George Street in Corby.
The proposals have been submitted by Mulberry Developments in two applications to Corby Borough Council.
The hotel would feature 70 bedrooms, a coffee shop with associated drive-through hatch, and 31 parking spaces.
The apartment development would feature 92 flats in four blocks, with six one bed and 17 two bedroom apartments in each block. 116 parking spaces would be provided.
A design statement submitted to the council says: “The scheme proposed is one that is economically viable whilst creating an attractive home environment for future residents.
“The density of the scheme, whilst it could be greater, respects the adjacent ancient woodland. It also reacts to the challenging levels on the existing site. The proposed scheme allows for strong visibility across the site for crime prevention and safety, and good landscaping opportunities to connect to the woodland.
“The scale and type of properties are appropriate for the Town Centre environment in Corby. The properties are conveniently located and suitable for both young and old. With central town access for shopping all within a short walk, good access to public transport links and access to the vibrant local night-life.
“The proposal develops a prime central site with a scheme that, when combined with the Hotel, can be suitably integrated into the existing town centre. The design is sympathetic to the existing surroundings and enhances the town centre.
“The design has evolved through a considered process and has been continually re-assessed against the clients brief and Borough Councils aspirations during the design and consultation process.
“These proposals aim to deliver a scheme that will bring a positive contribution to the centre of Corby offering sought after apartments that meet the needs of the town centres new residents.”
