A development partner is being sought to transform a key site in the heart of Worcester into a new residential development. Worcester City Council is seeking a partner for the redevelopment of the former Sansome Walk swimming pool in the city centre.
The council is proposing to demolish the existing buildings, with work starting in November, to make way for a high-quality residential scheme. It is envisaged that the site will be able to accommodate around 50 new houses and apartments, including affordable properties, providing much needed city centre homes on a redundant brownfield site.
The former pool was closed after a new swimming pool and leisure centre in the Perdiswell area of Worcester was opened in 2017. The city council has instructed our Worcester team to bring the rare development opportunity to the market.
Partner Richard Tomlinson is expecting a high level of interest due to the site’s prominent location. He said: “This is an exciting instruction for Fisher German and is a project we have been working on with Worcester City Council for some time now. Sites such as this located so close to the city centre do not come to market often, therefore it presents a fantastic opportunity to create a unique and high quality development in an excellent location. It is a brilliant opportunity to place make and shape a key city centre site, and as a result we are expecting to receive a high level of interest from the market.”
Worcester City Council is proposing to have selected a development partner by December 2020, with the residential development of the site commencing in 2022. For more information or to register your interest as a development partner, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
