This is a single storey Victorian building acquired by MRP in central Northampton. The site context of taller buildings, including the adjacent eight-storey Park Inn Hotel, allowed MRP to obtain planning permission for a six-storey apartment block with a ground floor comprising office accommodation and under-croft parking. A top floor communal roof terrace offers residents views of the town and the apartments to the rear overlook the St Katherine's Square Memorial Garden and provide increased natural surveillance of this important public space. The site was commended by the planning committee for its design quality. The site was sold with planning permission to a housing association.
