This scheme, situated on a brownfield site (former petrol station) neighbouring the train station in central Rochester, had a history of failed planning attempts to deliver 50 flats on the site. However after extensive consultation with Medway Council, Historic England, Local councillors and the general public ECE gained approval for a new 7 storey landmark building.
The mixed use development includes 2 ground floor commercial stores and 64 new apartments across 6 floors, ranging from 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. The development also benefits from being Rochester’s first ‘car free’ development with promotion of sustainable travel methods.
Scale, mass and appearance draw on historic references with contemporary interpretations responding to both the existing context and contributing to Rochester’s future regeneration and master plan proposals.
