Project Description

The Hive will create an exemplar of inner city living in a post Covid-19 world. The development will repurpose a vacant public asset to deliver living accommodation, focused on key workers, enabled with digital technologies and green spaces, based around a local community hub to serve local people.

Project Rationale

  • Responds to a need for a range of housing options to support the continued vibrancy of the City Centre, Covid-19 recovery and economic growth
  • Re purposes redundant public assets to deliver new homes and a community hub alongside provision for digital education and training and home working
  • Complements the wider urban regeneration proposals and aligns with the principles of clean growth through the re-use and restoration of an existing asset
