When considering the impact of this development, it is worth bearing in mind, the wider context, with Mount Pleasant and the NCP Car Park across the road, which is also currently seeking planning permission for offices and a hotel. To read more about this, click HERE

The redevelopment has been designed by Allford Hall Monaghan and Morris (AHMM) for the developer Viridis. Some of you will remember AHMM from the RMG’s Mount Pleasant proposal. They are the ‘award winning’ architects that claim to be “pre-eminent in the education sector with a number of key projects that are setting new standards for learning environments.” Their contribution to Mount Pleasant was a 15-storey tower outside the entrance of Christopher Hatton Primary School, that caused such horror among staff, pupils, parents and local residents when revealed in 2012.

Viridis Real Estate is, in their own words “a boutique property company that invests on behalf of its overseas shareholders in direct assets that provide secure income streams and capital growth that outperform the market.”
