The conversions of two prominent buildings in Leicester city centre, representing a combined investment of circa £1m, are two of our latest projects.


At 171-173 London Road, overlooking the two lodges marking the entrance to Victoria Park, we’re prepare construction drawings to create 16 new studio and one bed apartments for the Build to Rent (BTR) market. Nearby in the cultural quarter, opposite Curve Theatre, we obtained planning permission for a further six one and two bed upper floor apartments as part of a conversion scheme on the corner of Halford Street and Wigston Street. Construction works on both sites are set to begin imminently and expected to complete in 2022.


“These schemes occupy two prime locations in Leicester city centre, visible from the city’s main gateways and attractions,” said our director, Dan Nestoruk. “We’re pleased to have the opportunity to reinvest in our home city and repurpose these buildings with a new lease of life.

Both buildings have designs of architectural importance. As such, it’s our intention to retain as many original features as possible, from the decorative stonework to original sash windows, whilst establishing a synergy between the historical character and a fresh modern feel within each apartment.
