Student accommodation and cafe to be created at former sewing machine factory

Plans to redevelop a former retail and office building to provide student accommodation and a cafe have been given the go ahead by Nottingham City Council.

The proposals for the former Grains Building on Heathcote Street involve the demolition and redevelopment of the entire rear portion of the site.

74 student bed spaces would be provided in a variety of studio and cluster flats.

The buildings on site were originally constructed as a sewing machine factory and the part of the building fronting Heathcote Street was constructed as offices with retail below.

The buildings were combined into one ownership in the 60s. The sewing machine factory was converted to retail space and storage. This use ceased around two years ago, with the buildings remaining vacant since.
