The regeneration of the King Street and Riverside areas of Norwich is something which has been ongoing for more than two decades. Following the opening of the entertainment complex in 1999, a number of residential developments sprung up around the Novi Sad Bridge area, but the King Street side of the riverbank has continued to be something of an eyesore. Now, thanks to a number of new developments, this area looks set to get a new lease of life and BMA are delighted to be involved in making it happen.
Working alongside developers Heritage Developments, our team of operatives have been decorating the 22 apartments and town house being constructed on the corner of Music House Lane and King Street. Spread over four floors, Heritage has promised that the apartments will offer the “very highest standards of finishing” and as ever our decorators have not disappointed. Each apartment has been decorated in white throughout, with the moulded skirting and architraves finished in white gloss.
“Our King Street development offers a touch of modern luxury living that we believe homeowners are going to love. This site provides a fantastic city centre location in what is a beautiful city – we’re absolutely delighted with the results” – Mark Bradnum, Sales and Marketing Manager at Heritage
Wider Development of King Street Area
As one of the most historic areas of the city, the excavations being carried out ahead of the redevelopment of St. Anne’s Wharf have thrown up some fascinating finds. What was once the location of the 13th century Austin Friars Priory has served up everything from coins and pottery to human and animal bones – giving an insight into the city’s Medieval past.
Once the development is complete, the regenerated St Anne’s Quarter as it will be known is expected to offer:
- 437 new homes
- 22,000 sq. ft. of commercial space
- A central plaza
- Landscaped open space
“We have committed to spending £70 million to regenerate St Anne’s Quarter into a mixed-tenure sustainable development that will provide new homes to meet need and aspiration”
The first homes are expected to be completed in 2017 and it promises to be one of the final pieces of the jigsaw in terms of redeveloping this area of the city.
