This project saw the conversion of an unloved and unused 20,000 square foot building that had been derelict for over 10 years, into contemporary low carbon apartments, constructed using environmentally friendly materials and products. These have been carefully selected to reduce the demand on natural resources and energy intensive manufacturing methods, and are designed to reduce day-to-day living costs and encourage residents to lead a more sustainable lifestyle.
As well as renovation to the existing three floors, a further floor was constructed to create penthouse apartments. The ground floor was converted to retail space bringing welcome facilities to part of the city centre that was in need of regeneration.
90 Princess Street is on track to achieve an Outstanding rating by BREEAM, the best a building can be awarded.
