Supermarket & Flats, Abingdon

After having previously gained a planning and conservation area consent for a contemporary scheme for the site, our client underwent a merger and the new administration expressed a preference for a larger retail unit at ground floor level.

The piled foundations for the previously consented scheme had by then been constructed under an archaeological watching brief, and the new scheme was configured to optimise their re-use.

This, our second design for this site followed a more traditionally styled approach, albeit with only nine apartments due to prioritising the larger retail unit.

The project was consented, completed and fully let across both the retail and residential uses before being sold on to an institutional investor.
