People, this is a good design. Riverside crescent got all the headlines at the time but was totally flawed. This has got a nice clean design, with windows nicely inset to provide balconies. Sven's love palace next door looks like a cross between the corner house and willy wonka's great glass elevator. It hasn't stood the test of time even from 2008!

I particularly like the publc space. This is the most important aspect of all the proposd riverside designs, River Crescent was almost intentionally hidden away like a gated development. That might appeal to some but for the good of urban regeneration i want to see an active and accessible riverside.

Is it actually Public Space though, or is it like Southreef where it's basically gardens for residents?

States on this render "fully accessible to the public"

That's good enough for me, and once it's built I shall be hob-knobbing with the local cyclists, salty seadogs and occasional special brew drinkers for a riverside stroll.

Looking good. Inoffensive and clean lines is no bad thing.

I like it. Prefer this finish, although it's quite close to the river's edge. Would be nice to have more public area.

All discussion on this should be in this thread now I guess, so to recap, from today's Media Insider:


GREEN LIGHT FOR NOTTINGHAM RIVERSIDE SCHEME

A significant residential scheme on the banks of the River Trent has been given the green light by Nottingham City Council planners.

The proposals, lodged by McCann Family Investments Ltd in May 2015, comprise the demolition of existing buildings on land at the Park Yacht Club on Trent Lane to make way for 88 apartments.

The units will be spread across three separate blocks rising to six, seven and eight storeys high respectively.

New documents seen by Insider revealed that the proposals were approved subject to a number of conditions by the city council last week (17 March 2016). The permission will expire in three years.

The development land is bordered by the River Crescent apartment block to the east and the Merrill Brown Industrial Estate to the north.

To the west is Trent Basin, a former industrial and warehouse site which is currently being regenerated by Blueprint Regeneration.

Exceptional news. With the Meadow Lane developments you've suddenly got development all along the river. It's all good news - now get a tram down to Colwick, to turbocharge the regeneration!

Perhaps this is good news? One Hockley was up for sale till last summer and work commenced recently after.

The owners of land by the River Trent which has planning permission for a luxury flats development have confirmed delays in the project led them to put it up for sale.

Milton Keynes firm McCann Homes got the go-ahead from Nottingham City Council to build 81 flats at the Park Yacht Club site, Trent Lane, – and work was expected to start in Spring 2016 and finish in 2018.

But Notts TV reported on Monday that the site is now up for sale and a deadline had passed last week for prospective buyers to register their interest.

It has indeed - JCBs were pulling it down at around 07:15 as I passed this morning, as no camera on me so no photos.

FHP Property Consultants and Savills have been instructed by McCann Homes from Milton Keynes to sell a site fronting the River Trent at Colwick.

....

It is hope that the site will be sold by the end of 2017 and that completion of the development will be early 2019.

The anticipated end value of the development will be in the region of £23,000,000 – £25,000,000.
