Royal Connaught apartments
F3 develop act as development advisor to the owners exploring a proposal to retain the existing structures and to extend between and above the blocks with an independent structure to provide additional units.
The opportunity has arisen to coordinate the Royal Connaught development with the adjoining Marriott Hotel development which was granted planning permission in July 2017. The proposal would see the transfer of land to enable the Marriott to extend their proposal and join the buildings.
- The proposed Marriott extension would provide an additional 36 hotel rooms in close proximity to City Airport
- The revised proposal seeks to create continuity along the Connaught Road frontage
- In response to Design Review Panel comments, the height of the Royal Connaught proposal has been increased to create varied height across the site
- The additional height provides the opportunity to increase communal amenity space across the site which is currently in short supply
