Granby Station Street Nottingham

Quartet of Nottingham City Centre Schemes Complete

The final hand over of award-winning East Midlands urban developer Bildurn’s 50,000 sq foot icon space to D& G of 11 Station Street, Nottingham marks the completion of the final stage of this major scheme.

Located in the heart of Nottingham City Council’s ‘Southside Redevelopment Zone’ the Station Conservation Area site sits is close to the Midland railway station – which has enjoyed a multimillion-pound facelift – the area is at the heart of the city’s public transport network and the best-connected area in Nottingham.

The multimillion-pound transformational project has seen the completion of four important developments in this waterside location evolving the skyline. Bildurn’s investment in high quality development of the area of Station Street and Carrington Street is over 20 years in the making and has involved the demolition of existing buildings

As well as the new iconic Grade A £65m D&G offices, close by is the stunning Vita Student complex, a £24m scheme of 320 high-end student flats. The other two elements are the renovation of the former Granby and Gresham Hotels, these neighbouring buildings overlooking the canal. D & G will move into the space in March this year.

The contemporary 11 Station Street building was designed by Franklin Ellis using a mix of traditional and modern materials, providing a striking development over 5 floors. It is fully glazed all the way around, creating different environments on each office floor plan with a view over the canal. It was constructed to BREEAM Excellent rating with a range of sustainable measures as well as providing electric car charging points and secure cycle storage.
The upper floors of the building cut back and feature an external terrace and roof garden with views across the city.

Bildurn’s substantial investment in the complete renovation and sympathetic conversation of the former Gresham Hotel on Carrington Street and The Granby (and Police station) also on Station Street has seen their conversation into luxury apartments. On both schemes Bildurn has retained or re-instated many original features within the properties, including restoration of the original sash and stained-glass windows. The Gresham’s redevelopment began in 2016 with new ground floor retail including 200 Degrees.

Sean Akins, Managing Director at Bildurn comments. “We’re delighted to have completed our final part in this major scheme for Nottingham to help create a truly impressive welcome to the city. We have nurtured this area over many years and now have finished our contribution to the development of the southern gateway, with one of our most significant projects to date.

“Now visitors arriving in the city will have a very different vision which is dramatically different to what has stood there for years previously. It has been our ambition to reinvigorate this area and we have worked hard to sympathetically regenerate a previously ugly and unattractive space.

“We have worked with an excellent team over many years to help deliver these projects to life over many years including the design team led by Franklin Ellis; agents Matthew Smith and James Keeton, Ben Kelly and Adam Youatt at Gateley Legal and Neil Hartley at Lorne Estates.”

Privately owned and based in Nottingham, Bildurn has experience in developing commercial and mixed-use schemes, both new build and refurbishment, for a range of occupiers. Notable Bildurn schemes in the city include The Pod, Lace Market Square and 1-9 Bridlesmith Gate. @BildurnNews
