Some nice new juicy renders of the approved scheme, which sees some changes to the design, although the overall scheme remains the same.

And to think I thought this scheme couldn't look any better...

They appear to have trimmed down that blank, corner section. Great little tweak that, looks smarter now rather than blank space.
Well spotted LW

Is it me, or is there also more interactivity at street level. More ground level front doors which open out into the streets? Looks very smart indeed - just shows how a few small tweaks, make all the difference

I'm not sure if there are more of them, but they seem to have added handrails which smarten things up even further.
I really quite like the top floor as well. I'm not usually a fan as it usually looks like the architect just can't decide how to finish the building off but i think given that the corner section is double height and there's a slight slope to the vertical section it's all quite striking.. Obviously the finish is the key but given the renders and whats been built around here recently we seem to be getting into a situation where each new developement is slightly better than the last.. Developers almost seem to have a bit of pride in what they're putting up..
Yep, the developer is Cassidy Group who built Saffron Court nearby. They're also behind Chainey Place, the new York House site and the massive student proposal Deakins Place.

With perhaps the exception of York House, which i'm waiting to see for myself how it turns out, they're all solid developments particularly this and Chainey Place: London Road | Cassidy Group

They like that curved brick wall!

Got sent this photo this morning, site clearance underway:

Feels like this building will be a game changer in reconnecting the Meadows with the city centre (if indeed it was ever actually connected in the first place, given that the Meadows was mostly built long after the GCR viaducts)
Exciting times, really like this chap..

Just popped by the site to see for myself:

Who knew I could be so excited to see a field of mud?
It is a rather large plot isn't it, looking forward to (hopefully) see this progress
Good news if they have got it to stack up, I had heard they were struggling to fund it because the apartment sizes were generally smaller than what most investment funds will accepts in BTR developments which is what has caused the hold up on development.

I do like this development but the fact that there is no thoroughfare through the middle is somewhat concerning, it could be another Broadmarsh wall being built, and instead of reconnecting the Meadows, it could be making it even more difficult to traverse

The difference between this and the Broadmarsh is that this site doesn't block any routes or thoroughfares, adding a cut through here was cut out due to the potential in anti-social activity and the creation of a potential rat-run. Having a cut through here would also mean you'd have to divert around the The Triangle site anyway.

To me, it wouldn't make much sense when the surrounding street pattern already forms around the site in a linear and direct fashion, with all routes leading to the same junction outside the train station, and this development only enhances it further.

The route through the middle was removed as it didn't lead to anywhere on either side The only reason it was introduced in the original scheme was because it was half PBSA and half PRS and nobody wants to love in a flat next to a student hall! The route into the meadows is next the the tower element, which is why there are public realm improvements here, creating a better entrance to the Meadows
Went past this on the tram today. Anyone know when construction is likely to start? Would be nice to get this going. Would mean there would be a near-continuous set of construction projects, from Vantage through to Queens Road (where the Network Rail PRS block is underway).
Went past today and noticed something some new equipment and people in high vis jackets on site.

Their van was labelled 'geotechnics', but I havn't a clue what they were doing. Perhaps soil testing?
