Gulson Road | Residential/Retail | 16/6/5fl | U/C.

Work has now started on a new residential scheme on Gulson Road on the former site of Elliotts Car Accessories.

The scheme comprises two buildings for residential use up to a maximum height of 16 storeys, providing 167 dwellings including retail and/or cafe use.

Nice view of the city centre showing the new development in the foreground. The image can only be a year or two old, but already quite a few additions to the skyline since then.

The collection of towers at this point will look quite something. I suspect we will see more of these 'edge of centre' sites developed as student accommodation both 'swallows up' the best city centre sites whilst also making the city centre a more desirable place to live.

The hoardings have been painted black but that's it so far.
