An extended entrance hall is140m sq including waiting/meeting space and a 75m mezzanine with meeting room.
There are two indoor communal amenity areas to the top of the building of 244m and 176m each with a roof terraces to the same levels of approximately 130 m sq each.

Planning History

The scheme was consented under Permitted Development. An application for lawful development was submitted Nov 2013. Pre-application were undertaken but the LPA would not negotiate any matters including affordable housing and they objected to the PD. A separate full application for re-Cladding was consented late 2014.
