The existing 13-storey office block sits opposite the railway station between Orchard Street and High Street and the scheme will include the construction of an additional two storeys to the block.
The scheme provides 12 studios and the remainder cluster flat bedrooms. The project includes management area, show accommodation, common rooms, laundrette and a ground floor retail unit.
The site is surrounded by commercial and residential buildings which will be mostly occupied during the construction works. Alexandra House which adjoins the site is a live office building that will be occupied for the duration of the project.
