Further plans for one of Nottingham’s most significant development sites were revealed yesterday (11 July) by Conygar Investment Company plc, at a breakfast event hosted by Invest in Nottingham.
The event saw more than 70 influential professionals from businesses across the East Midlands come together to hear about the plans for a brand new mixed-use scheme on the former Boots Island site, which were submitted last month (June).
Held at the Jurys Inn overlooking the redevelopment site, attendees were given an insight into the make-up of the proposed scheme and shown the latest artist’s impressions of how it will look upon completion.
Christopher Ware of Conygar Investment Company plc – which purchased the site in 2016, said: “It was great to see so many people attend the breakfast, from key business owners to the city’s stakeholders, all of whom have shown a keen interest in learning more about our ambitious plans for the site.
“We are aware of how significant the development is to Nottingham and we are really looking forward to watching our plans come together and go hand in hand with the city’s vision – we can’t wait to create a new community in the city centre and be part of Nottingham’s exciting future.”
Lorraine Baggs, head of inward investment at Invest in Nottingham, added: “This is a landmark site for Nottingham and it was great to see so many members of the city’s business community come together to find out more about it. The event was hugely positive and we are excited to see this scheme progress.”
Conygar is working with regeneration specialist Lavignac Securities to deliver the site, which lies between Manvers Street at the bottom of Sneinton and London Road.
The plans will see the 40-acre site, which has laid derelict for many years, totally transformed to bring new homes, grade A office space, creative market space, a five-star hotel, retail units, a ‘linear’ park and community space as well as new student accommodation to the city.
