|Project Title:||Frogmore Road, Market Drayton|
|Project Size:||14 Apartments & 1858m² Office Space|
|The Client:||Various Retail / Pickstock Homes|
This project consisted of a mixed use town centre retail development on a former brownfield site, adjacent to the central car park in Market Drayton, comprising 1858m² (20,000 sq.ft) of retail accommodation with loading bay, 14 residential apartments and improvements to the existing public square.
The 14 two bedroom residential apartments were built to a high specification throughout, each had their own integrated balconies and secure residential car park area to the rear of the building. These apartments provided great living space in a central location with the added security of retail units below.
The objective of this project was to re-generate an important town centre site with high quality mixed use retail and residential units. The development also required prominent frontage to the central car park.
During phase one of the project Pickstock Construction provided a range of flexible retail accommodation, which was capable of sub-division into five to six units all benefiting from excellent frontage to the Town Centre car park and return frontage to Frogmore Road, the town’s inner link road. The retail accommodation also has first floor storage space which is accessed via a dedicated stairway and goods lift. The scheme also included proposals to refurbish and improve the adjoining public square.
Allowing goods access to the retail units was fundamental to the project and this was achieved by forming a lay by off Frogmore Road enabling larger commercial vehicles to pull into the site without disrupting the flow of traffic on either Frogmore Road or the central car park.
Phase two of the project consisted of 9,000 sq ft of the commercial property being let to B & M Retail Ltd, which left 4,500 sq ft of available space, capable of being sub-divided into two units.
