NOTTINGHAM | ISIS Waterside Masterplan | App

ISIS Trent Basin
River Trent Waterside Regeneration

Status: Proposed
[B]Regen Zone:[B] Waterside
Developer: ISIS
Architects: Benoy Architects
Cost: Ģ400+
Size ?
Use: 2,200 Homes, Office (1,905mē), Retail (3,709mē), Community Space (927mē) including moorings.

Links:
SSC Thread
Official Website
New Nottingham Page
ISIS Website
Benoy Architects

Notes:
Nottingham Trent Basin regeneration project is a new landmark waterfront district of housing,
restaurants, bars, shops and offices. The aim is to create an attractive new mixed-use district
that is unique, sustainable, fully integrated and fully accessible to the public.

The regeneration plans include:-

• opening up views to the river which are currently obscured by industrial premises
• around 2,000 new homes including family homes, townhouse terraces, studios and apartments
• vibrant and distinctive public areas including new public squares
• a waterfront walk connecting to existing walks and waterfronts
• waterside bars, restaurants, retail outlets and small ‘start up’ offices

The ISIS development site will without a doubt become one of the most magnificent places in
the city. ISIS are still in close contact with the council working out the final layout for there
masterplan. Both Nottingham City Council and ISIS have spoke of the need for the site to be
an architectural statement. ISIS have even raised the possibility of the final designs for the
buildings to go to a design competition.

Current Status
ISIS have formally submitted an application to the city council. The city council has been
considering the application for the masterplan for a while now. The council have shown their
support to the scheme and we should here something from the council in the near future.

I cant wait to see the final design. The councils are due to accept the masterplan application at the end of this year. I think the next phase is going to be amazing as well. Remember... the next phase is closer to town and it looks as if this is where all the conference centre stuff will fit it....

Its going to be mighty close to the incinerator though!

Dan did you ever see the Nottingham Waterside plans? As i am sure that the area was much bigger than this and encompassed everything from London road through Meadow lane over to where river crescent is currently going up. Part of this was the CPMG masterplan opposite the City Ground.

Yeah I did... If you look at Benoys website they have some plans for the site where CPMG... Benoy have been employed by ISIS so it looks like ISIS will be dealing with the whole site...

The whole waterside site is below...above is just phase 1...

Talking

i really hope they have innovative designs down by the river side - like the pod - because it is such a blank canvas.... so there dont have to keep to the integrity of other the area..... but once one shit building goes in it could spell the end for great design..... what do you guys think?

and danz can you give me the app for the site, i wouldnt mind a read..... or if it is on new notts i'll find it there i figure...

These plans look really exciting...ISIS have a definate proven track record looking at the other projects in London and Leeds that they have been involved in. I think the variety in the plans they are presenting is fantastic as well. It looks like they have a nice mixture of flats and houses for families as well as one and two bedroom apartment blocks.

Hopefully the final phases by the Daleside road will feature some signiture buildings as well, and encorage development all along that road. I do kinda feel sorry for the industry in the sense that its being edged off land all over the city, lol. It will be a great entrance to the city once that and Eastside kick off. Looking at it, i would imagine they would both be under construction about the same sort of time as well.

The majority of it is used as a park and for recreational purposes so it'd be nice to stay like that I think.
It'd be nice for the residents to use it although it'd be abit of a walk to get there.

ARRGGHHH!! I was just typing for ages and I lost it...i dunno what I did...lets start again...

right...I was saying... I don't think we're going to see any signature developments...the area is going to be more or less totally residential with the exception of a few bars, shops and the offices on daleside road...

The plans will be high quality....very innovative.... pretty, unusual, creative... even iconic...but they won't nessessarly be landmark, or flagship... they want the area to be nice to bring up familys, lots of nice area, lots of townhouses inbetween the big blocks... building heights limited to about 8/9 stories rising to a max about 12 further down to the river... take a look at the planning app its very interesting...

All the masterplans i've seen (for the whole site... not just the trent basin)...show the more flagship developments further down towards town... talks of iconic buildings, and riverside plaza etc all happen further down... take at look at the image below for example (from the masterplan)...

image hosted on flickr


4ward4notts... i added some links to the original post at the top so check them out...one of them is the planning up... they take ages to download

Re the stuff towards the forest ground...i think they have enough already to think about lol... but stefs right...if i'm thinking of the place you are its very green and recreational...i think the council will want to keep it that way

Excuse my french but **** me thats a big development. It didn't really occur to me how large it was from the renders.
Two new footbridges aswell. That could look really good and if they were lit up at night they would look brilliant.
It's a shame some of the buildings at the Cattle Market will go as there is one inparticular thats a real treasure. It looks alot like an old train station.

It probaby is an old train station.. I hear they had about 2 different stations in the area back in the day... thats probably the other one...

if its listed it probably won't go... it'll be like what they did with holmes place/virgin active

It'd be nice if they incorporated it into the design. It'd look quite nice as an office or even a post office

Just to add to the image i just posted are these two images which we've seen before... the point i'm making is that these two pictures are definateltly not associated with the ISIS Trent Basin they're doing now....so they must be part of plans for the other parts of the site...

image hosted on flickr


image hosted on flickr


The plans are huge... i would encourage you to look at some of the other stuff they done around the country... ISIS have handled nearly every cities waterside masterplan... LITERALLY!... because they're only masterplan and not actual designs....non of them look the same....

Just had a quick look and the projects there currently involved with look of really high quality. Granary Wharf in Leeds is already well underway and there working fairly quickly apparently.
The scheme in Manchester looks brilliant.

Thought i'd add this in as well... little by little..things are moving... British waterways put in an application about a month ago... this was in the post.... can't remember if i've posted it already or not...

Quote:
British Waterways is planning to spruce up Meadow Lane Lock in Quayside Close.

It has submitted plans to Nottingham City Council to upgrade the towpath, build a new footbridge and rebuild the existing sanitary facilities to include new toilets, showers and a small office, on behalf of Nottingham Waterside Limited.

The sanitary station is small, insufficient and does not have disabled access, which is required by law, the application says.

It says the area could be turned into a popular wildlife spot.

The city council will consider the proposals in the coming months.

Yeh I think that info has been posted before. It'd be nice to see that area spruced up abit with all the plans around it.
I haven't been down there for years but remember it being quite a pleasant place to be.
