Stockport residential boom continues at Piccadilly
In the latest residential scheme to come forward in Stockport town centre, plans have been submitted for a mixed-use project on a car park opposite Regal House on Piccadilly.
Working for Alasasyah Developments, architect PHA has put forward the proposals, which feature a mix of one, two, and three bed apartments over 10 storeys. There are also plans for five retail units at ground floor level fronting Piccadilly.
Five of the apartments have been set aside as affordable homes.
The blocks will be clad in a mix of red and blue-glazed brick, while the balconies will be glass. There are also plans for a large roof terrace on the fourth floor along with a smaller terrace at the fifth.
The site, currently used as a surface car park, sits opposite Regal House, a former office which has been converted to apartments by the same developer.
It also sits near the site of the former Greenhale House, which is set to be developed into a 13-storey block by Urbanize Homes, featuring 164 apartments and a ground-floor leisure unit.
Stockport has seen a series of residential proposals come forward in recent months, with the council looking to press ahead with a 3,000-home masterplan for the town centre, working with Cushman & Wakefield, Optimised Environments, and WSP.
A Mayoral Development Corporation is also being established to focus on developing 130 acres of brownfield land in and around the centre of Stockport.
