Jansons secured planning consent for a development comprising 13 new apartments in two buildings on the site of a former car park in the centre of the historic market town of Petersfield.
Located within a Conservation Area, the brief was to create a scheme that preserved and enhanced the character of the town centre by ensuring that the scale, design and proportions of the new buildings were sympathetic to and consistent with their surroundings.
We also wanted to retain the pedestrian passageways and links between the surrounding streets and the car park that are characteristic of the town centre by incorporating landscaped areas of public realm between the buildings.
The consented scheme achieved all this and more and was approved by East Hampshire District Council under delegated powers.
Work on site commenced in 2020 with apartments available to purchase in 2021.
Comprising of a late 1980s detached red brick office building. The offices were part let and also included six apartments sold on long ground leases...
Purchase price of £2.9m and the vendor Snappy Snaps pension fund. Jansons identified the Chiswick High Road as a very strong residential location. In addition, there are a number of retail requirements requiring bigger footprints with strong frontages.
The building benefited from rear car parking and direct access from the Chiswick High Road. A planning application was submitted to convert the office building into 20 apartments along with an extension at the upper floor level to provide two major penthouses.
The ground floor was to provide 3 and half thousand sq ft of retail accommodation. Jansons converted the office building, added the penthouses and enhanced the elevations. The game plan was to hold back all the apartments until the property was finished. At a launch weekend most of the properties sold, while the ground floor was let to Majestic Wine.
