A partially cleared vacant site at 83-87 Castle Street and 7 Marquis Street.
The Fenton Partnership and McCutcheon & Wilkinson Architects submitted a planning application (Z/2009/0216/F) in February 2009 proposing to develop a four storey building comprising ground floor retail unit and 3no. office units above. The application was withdrawn in January 2010 and a revised planning application (Z/2010/0691/F) was submitted in May 2010 proposing to develop a six storey building comprising ground floor retail and 5no. office units above. The application was approved in November 2015.
The site was vested by the Department for Communities and in August 2019 a development brief was issued by the Department inviting proposals for the redevelopment of the site.
The Communities Minister announced in January 2021 that CSI1818 Ltd had been appointed to redevelop the site at Castle Street and Marquis Street. A press release at the time noted that CSI1818 Ltd had also acquired adjacent sites for development alongside the Department’s site and their combined redevelopment would comprise retail space and residential accommodation.
