A £56 million housing development in Warrington town centre is starting to dominate the skyline.

The construction of the apartment block and public multi-storey car park in Warrington town centre started early last year.

Planning chiefs approved a scheme to build the eight-storey block, with 362 homes, and a nine-storey 796-space car park on the site, on Winwick Street and John Street, in 2018.

Now the scheme, on Winwick Street and John Street is really emerging.

Warrington Guardian:

Sited on a former industrial site next to Warrington Central, it comprises a mix of one-bed and two-bed apartments.

The site partially sits within the Winwick Street conservation area and includes approx 400m² commercial unit to front Winwick Street, with a café proposed to front the train station on Central Way.

Warrington Guardian:

The scheme has two adjoining phases of residential apartments wrapped around an internal courtyard, both of which are accessed via the entrance foyer located on Winwick Street.

It also includes a large multi-storey car park with a 'living green wall' and a seventh floor 'sky lounge'.

Work is expected to be complete in 2021.
