The proposed four-storey apartment block on Grimshaw Street will consist of competitively priced one and two-bedroom modern luxury apartments in keeping with Preston's ‘city living’ image.

The development, which sits adjacent to the Grade II listed Seventh Day Adventist Church dating from 1857-9, and Grimshaw Street School, dating from 1836, will reinstate the site to its previous residential use.

With further projects in the pipeline the developer, Pillars Construction, hopes to make this a signature development as in the UK’s ‘most improved city’.

David Cox from David Cox Architects said “With the vision to create a truly sensitive design we were mindful to enrich the local building form which currently exists.

"There are a number of vacant plots along Grimshaw Street and, by creating this viable option for a site which has seen various applications over the years, it is hoped it will act as a catalyst for further regeneration.”

Preston based Smith & Love are acting as planning consultants. A decision is expected by Preston City Council in early 2019.
