The Waterside Apartments: August Update

Progress has continued over the summer months at The Waterside Apartments. With an increase of media coverage for the project, the city of Nottingham and its residents are now seeing the transformations first hand.

As you enter the city from the South over Trent Bridge, you can now start to appreciate the form of The Waterside Apartments now the structural steelwork has been completed. The proportions of the new 10 story southern tower along with the 2 additional penthouse levels sat on top of the existing building give the development a greater presence without being over bearing.

Externally the new curtain wall façade to the rear is largely complete, the South tower curtain wall is 50% complete and the North tower approx. 20% complete.

Internally The Waterside Apartments have also seen dramatic changes. The second fix electrical installation is now complete in many apartments and are awaiting testing. Furthermore, with the kitchen and bathrooms installations well underway the spaces are starting to feel like homes.

Recently the scheme has been featured on BBC East Midlands News with an interview with our client Samuel Monk of Monk Estates. There has been great interest in the project from conception and this has no sign of slowing down with completion edging closer.

Overlooking the River Trent, The Waterside Apartments is a prominent building that was once home to the local council but has been vacant for many years. Leonard Design were approached to progress and develop a concept which involved the reuse of the existing building adding 121 apartments. In addition to the conversion of the existing building, the scheme also introduced two new build residential towers (North and South) and duplex luxury penthouses.
