Major city centre offices approved

Approval has been granted to build a seven-storey commercial office building in Nottingham city centre which would have space for 1,150 employees.

Designed by Franklin Ellis Architects, the scheme will be constructed on land in Arkwright Street after the city council gave the project the green light on Wednesday 19 June.

A total of 124,000 sq ft floor space will be created and the building will also include a café and meeting spaces on the ground floor.

Speaking in March, council leader Cllr Jon Collins said: “We know there is a desire for more top quality office space to bring more jobs and employees to the city and hopefully from across the Midlands.

“Our proposed transformation of Crocus Place will add to that being offered by Unity Square, City Buildings and Bildurn on Station Street and create a busy office quarter of the city, not just in office space but in the look of the building.

“We are confident that this new development will be a great success and addition to the Nottingham landscape.”

The city council is behind the scheme.
