First Modern High Rise Planned For Hull

Kingston upon Hull may not be the most glamourous location around but it is about to join the British high-rise boom if a developer can get their designs through the local planning system.

The developer, Hollybrook Homes, plans a refurbishment of the existing Co-Operative Building, known as the Edwin David Building, on Bond Street.

Hollybrook Homes aim on converting the existing building into more modern accommodation and adding an 18 floor tower to it that will contain 138 new apartments in the first development of its kind in Hull.

The site occupies a prime position right in the very centre of Hull only a stones throw from the pedestrianised retail areas around Feren's Art Gallery and Prince's Quay. This is an area that should prove highly popular for people who want everything on their doorstep including some of the most appealing parts of the city and easy access to the train station.

Despite the poor shape it is in, Hull has had very limited redevelopment, particularly residential with developers preferring to concentrate on new shopping precincts such as St Stephens.

There are large numbers of empty houses on council estates whilst the population of the city has generally been shrinking for the past few decades however there is a major shortage of modern residential accommodation within the city centre despite the overall excess of housing and cheap prices that Hull offers.

Hollybrook clearly hope they can be the first developer to cash in on this and drag one of England's less glamourous cities towards an era of modern city living although they have their work cut out to actually start attracting people there from around England.
