Plans have been submitted by Asiana for an apartment building containing 18 flats for the second time after being rejected to Nottingham Council. 14 of the flats on Raleigh Street in Nottingham will be one bed and 4 will be two bed. The building will be 4 storeys with a 5th clerestory level.

To address concerns that led to Asiana’s previous application being rejected a planning statement reads: “Since the planning application we have introduced additional elevation articulation in the form of curtain walling to address comments with regards to impact upon street scene and conservation area. This has been placed to distinguish between Portland Square and the proposed. It has also been placed to respond to the existing street elevational configuration comprising a rhythm of red brick and lighter coloured inset elements.

“To the rear the industrial metal clad core element has also been treated with the curtain walling system to lighten its appearance whilst still marking the entrance. It also provides a much more transparent and reflective corner to the core reducing the impact upon existing residents at Portland Square.

“In addition to the material change, the lift and smoke shaft have been reduced in height and set back to be a less visually dominant element. This height reduction has also reduced the impact upon the penthouse units at Portland Square.”
