Pilgrim House, 22-26 Commercial Road, Southampton (14/00760/PA56, 14/01947/FUL, 15/01868/MMA)

Working again with AndersRoberts Architects, the council’s prior approval was obtained for conversion of former offices over a pub to 24 apartments (19 x 1 bed and 5 x studios).

Permission was then sought to add height to the building to ultimately create 20 further apartments and a complete refresh of the tired 1970’s concrete panel cladding.  The challenge was persuading the council that the zero parking option was appropriate for this city centre location and respectful of 3 Listed Buildings surrounding the property, including Southampton’s famous Mayflower Theatre, which abutted the site.

A successful scheme has now been fully built out, viewable on line by going to - http://titan-property.co.uk/developments/pilgrim-house/
