High Street, Leicester
The site is situated on one of the main town centre High Street. The property which has been used for retail has never fully been utilised other than the ground floor.
Planning was obtained to convert the first and second floor into apartments whilst the third floor has been designed with a modern penthouse design, which involves the removal of the existing roof. The new extension took extensive dialogue with the planners and the conservation team due to its highly prominent location.
The project is currently on site and due to complete in late 2019.

The DSA team were instructed to establish how to make better use of the building and maximise the return whilst maintaining the retail element to the ground floor.
