NOTTINGHAM l Meadows Gateway Phase 1 l Pro

Meadows Gateway Phase 1

Status: Proposed
Regen Zone: Southside
Developer: Lace Market Properties
Architects: Make / Gehl Architects
Cost: £100m (Phase 1 & 2)
Use: Offices, Retail/Leisure, Hotel (155 bed), 65 Apartments


Notes:
Lace Market Properties won a competition to bring forward proposals to redevelop the Meadows Gateway in 2005. The largely derelict site lies adjacent to Nottingham Station and the Meadows housing estate. LMP brought onboard major international practices Make and later Gehl Architects. Several changes have already been made to the scheme including height reductions and the introduction of a weave concept for the fenestration and facade treatments. Phase 2 of the NET will pass through the site when it is completed.

Current Status:
An outline planning application for the entire scheme and a full application for Phase 1 were both submitted in April 2008.

I've just been reading through the design statement. I only wish more developments in Nottingham were being planned with such care and attention.

What happened to the red cladding that was on the original renders we saw a few years ago? Has it been changed?

Oh ok thanks Dan. I'll be so glad when this gets the go ahead. Im also relieved to see that the buildings along the road are being demolished they do look shocking.

Yeah I saw the plans a couple of days ago and wondered why no-one had put them up yet.

It not quite iconic is it, but its bloody good. The original proposals would have been more unique but I think they risked being too austere. The weave thing is classy but also different.

Guys, get your comments in off support for this one...

Building A - http://plan4.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/W...ghamNottingham

Outline Plan - http://plan4.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/W...ghamNottingham

I forgot..I did promise I'd ask anyone from the area to attend an event in the meadows. Last time they had a consultation the plans got knocked around alot...

We are presenting the scheme to the Meadows Community at 6pm next Tuesday at the Bridgeway Hall in the Meadows Bridgeway Centre.
Anyone connected to the Meadows is welcome to attend.
It would be good for people who are pro development and regeneration to attend, as these forums can get dominated by outspoken negative people.

I attach two images of the development to wet your appetite.

Regards

John Morris

I'm not sure if the images do it justice. The materials will make all the difference. The gold looking stuff you see will actually be aluminium. I'm not sure about the orange courtyard though lol. It looks like its going to a very dark area, deprived of any sunlight.

I am soooo excited about these plans...just look at the views that will greet you as you come out of the new look Hub...new towering buildings either side with a tree lined avenue. The 13stories of the Gateway sits really well alongside the Sovereign House development,. it looks like they have taken other develpoments into account. These with Pictureworks will work soo well! Woo! lol

Look at the last picture I posed. Look out the weaves are woven more loosely to create balconies. Fantastic.

Excellent. I don't mid losing the teracotta look as that is already being built at Jubilee Campus. This looks classy and dramatic. Such a relief that it hasn't been watered down to a low-rise group of boxes.

I really hope this is okayed and goes up soon. We need this to happen.

Agreed. It'd be a huge loss for Nottingham if this didn't go ahead as it's such a prestigious development and in such a prominent location.
Lets just hope the council don't prevent it from happening.

Brilliant. I wasn't to sure about the original proposal, it looked very boxy and imposing. But this looks really good and they have obviously put alot of work into how it works with the surounding building and developments going on. Fingers crossed this will get the go ahead.

Baring in mind that these lot have worked tirelessly with the community... and also baring in mind that this site was given to them by the council themselves for major redevelopment... I think the council are really behind this design.

Evening Post Reports...

Quote:
This is how one of Britain's top architects plans to change the face of Nottingham.

It is an impression of the £150m Meadows Gateway scheme designed by MAKE of London.

It was redrawn with fresh ideas after the first scheme published two years ago had a poor reception and was dubbed a "Berlin Wall" by city MP Alan Simpson.

A planning application has been submitted to Nottingham City Council by Lace Market Properties.

The first phase on the corner of Arkwright Street and Sheriff's Way is for a hotel, offices, leisure and apartments.

Mark Elliott, managing director of Lace Market Properties, says it will add "pizzazz" to a run-down area.

He says he has had considerable interest among potential hotel operators.

MAKE is led by architect Ken Shuttleworth who left Norman Foster's practice to set up his own firm. He was involved in the design of the Gherkin in the City of London which has become a landmark building.

Meadows Gateway ranges from 12 storeys down to six stories. The fascia has been designed to look like a basket weave in pale shades of red and yellow.

The ratio of apartments to offices and hotel will depend on the requirements of a hotel operator, said Mr Elliott. But offices will take about 60,000 sq ft.

A later phase of the tram network is planned to pass outside the scheme.

The developers says the high quality design will help Nottingham's image as a Core City, one of the country's key generators of wealth.

The first phase could create up to 1,000 jobs. The £50m-plus first phase is based around a public square and shops. The facades will vary in design but the use of colour will be a major feature.

Lace Market Properties was selected by the city council as its preferred developer and the design follows a series of public meetings which led to the reduction in height of some buildings and the redesign of facades.

Mr Elliott said: "This is an exciting project by a trophy architect that can transform this part of Nottingham.

"The impression of the city from the station is currently very poor and the MAKE proposal will deliver a first impression to be proud of.

"The proposal will form the heart of this regeneration area and will include a new public square with safe and convenient

This part of Nottingham is in desperate need of regeneration. Anyone who comes into the city from the station or the south of the city must be horrified by how run down and parochial it looks.

I like the look of this development and hopefully, along with the station development and the picture house, this embarassment will not continue for much longer.
