Planning Approval secured for Apartment Building at Canal Street

The new build scheme for 28 apartments was unanimously granted planning permission at last night’s Planning Committee.

The proposal is a modern take on a waterside aesthetic with references to traditional industrial wharf side buildings, but with a scale and proportion allied with domesticity. The form relates directly to the shape of the site and its relationship to the Grand Union Canal, the building stepping in plan, responding to the curve of the river.

The building, which is set to start on site shortly, will offer much needed smaller purpose-built accommodation, most probably aimed at the younger generation of Aylestone village, but also an opportunity for the downsizing market.
