Proposal for 73 residential units in a building up to 7 storrys in height. Close to the proposed new Novotel/Adagio Aparthotel and close to All Saints Church.

Not to be confused with All Saints Village being developed nearby on Vaughan Way.

Architects: MAA Architects

Posts from the Leicester Projects Summary thread earlier today:


I think that's a pretty flattering image/angle to be fair. The below is probably a truer reflection of what you'll see as you approach. It's not terrible but it's certainly not great either. Hopefully there'll be some signage there or even some decent wall art that detracts from the brick expanse. My only criticism of what is a fairly solid proposal though.

To be fair, it would only take a small redevelopment of the cluster of buildings in the corner, and for the one-storey white unit in the image below, to reach 2-3 storeys on Great Central St like it does on the Highcross St side for that 'wall' to pretty much disappear.

What’s baffling is the rest of the proposed developmentlooks okay and broadly similar in style to the Wullcombe. How can we all see that this looks wrong particularly as ‘gateway’ development. The planners have got to make them re-do the plans (some hope!).

Virtually impossible though to do anything else with that old shop there other than replicate it on the other side! But they’d rather create an awkward development for financial gain # they don’t care ultimately

I really don’t want this development to be approved on another prime site:
