Architects have submitted a planning application to Nottingham City Council
for permission to convert the listed Alfred Waterhouse offices on King Street
to residential. Built at the turn of the
last century for The Prudential Assurance Company, the ground floor was originally
a banking hall and is now a restaurant. The upper office floors remained as
Waterhouse originally intended, although much altered over the years to suit
modern working practice. By 2016 they
had become redundant, occupiers succumbing to edge of town working with parking
and easy access to the road network. It
is now set to be re-born as a high-quality city centre residential
23 one-bed and studio apartments are proposed over the three
floors, all linked by the original stone spiral stair at the rear with a roof
lantern above. Many of the previous
alterations undertaken are proposed to be reversed: most notably the removal of
a 1990’s steel stair and the plan form reverting back to the cellular
arrangement as constructed.
