A MASSIVE eight-storey apartment block which is breathing new life into a forgotten part of Warrington town centre is taking shape.

Work to build a £50 million apartment block and multi-storey car park close to Warrington Central Station has begun.

And the steel structure is already clearly visible from Winwick Street.

RAM Properties has sold the land, on Winwick Street and John Street, to High Street Residential.

The £3 million plus deal paves includes plans to build an eight-storey apartment block, with 362 units, and a public, nine-storey car park, with 796 spaces, on the site.

The developer is also required to contribute £75,000 towards a travel plan for the site, as part of the section 106 agreement.
