RBED together with Marsh Grochowski Architects developed the proposals for a developer competition run by Nottingham City Council. The council selected a preferred developer to redevelop the ‘Cross Wall Flats’ on Pitcairn Close and Hobart Close in the Meadows. This was in line with the Neighbourhood Development Plan for the Meadows and the 84 one bed flats are to be replaced with 73 new family homes. The developer is a consortium including the builders William Davis, ASRA Housing Association and Blueprint, who together have developed the Green Street scheme in the Meadows.

The scheme includes 73 new homes: 19 four bed houses, 40 three beds and 14 two beds. 34 of the homes will be for sale and another 21 for affordable rent with the rest being a mix of shared ownership and shared equity. The scheme will be an evolution of the nearby award winning Green Street development designed Marsh Grochowski. Most of the flats on the site are now empty and the council will be demolishing them early in the new year. The scheme received planning permission in October 2013.  Click here to view the project blog.
