Strategically located in the city centre just a 5-minute walk to the train station’s new southern entrance and to the city beyond, Arthur’s Fold is also ideally situated to benefit from the significant investment and increased employment levels associated with regeneration in the area.
Architecturally, the form and materials reflect the site’s incredible industrial heritage. For decades the site was home to a highly specialised steel fabrication company. The folded metal facade of the building pays homage to the historic fabrication process, while a bronze colour has been chosen for the cladding to help the building sit comfortably within the current and future context where the predominant material will be red brick.
The development has been designed for the build-to-rent market, providing 101 apartments (a mix of four 3-bed apartments, 20 2-bed, 49 1-bed and 28 1-bed suites), together with resident amenities on the ground floor. The proposed mix of unit types will cater for the young professionals that live and work in the area.
