Great Central is a large residential development located on a prominent site in Neepsend next to the Rover Don and the Inner Ring Road. At ground floor, there are two commercial units either side of an impressive double height lobby providing active frontages to the street. The apartments comprise a range of studios, one, two and three-bedroom sizes to suit different tastes and budgets.
The building is composed of a series of distinct and interlinked urban ‘perimeter’ blocks rising from 4 to 9 floors in height which accentuate the steep and challenging topography of the site. Together these blocks cluster around a generous south facing courtyard providing amenity for the residents and 20 parking spaces. The building respects the established and emerging Kelham Island/Neepsend vernacular in terms of its proportions, materiality and details.
Planning permission was granted in Nov 2017 and the scheme is expected to begin construction in Spring 2018.
