Planning Approval for Industrial Scheme in Chessington

Mountford Pigott is delighted to have received full planning consent for a new development in Oakcroft Road, Chessington. The proposed storage unit replaces an existing unit and will provide 2177m² of storage space and 214m² of associated office space and is in keeping with the industrial aesthetic of the area. The proposal includes an extensive landscape strategy to the rear of the site featuring a number of 6m Hornbeam trees to help screen the development from the neighbouring residential properties and provide the local residents a significantly better outlook than they currently have.

The project will be going out to tender in the next month with a start on site early next year.

Planning Approval for Mixed Use Development in Hove

Planning approval has been granted for the redevelopment of the Jaguar Land Rover site at 270 Old Shoreham Road, Hove.

This mixed-use scheme comprises a 3,153m² Big Yellow Self Storage unit as well as 688m² of flexi-offices over 3 storeys which provide active frontage along Old Shoreham Road. The surrounding urban context is fine grain residential and in order to address this the principal elevation has been broken down into small modules, creating a rhythm akin to terraced housing. The proposed materials for the scheme reflect those observed in the surrounding streetscape but will be used with contemporary detailing.

The development’s proximity to nearby residential properties to the rear of the site was taken into consideration in the design and a bespoke soft landscaping scheme including vertical green screening is an intrinsic part of the approved scheme.

The proposals will not only contribute to the local economy and the street scene, but will also enrich the local environment and enhance biodiversity with the introduction of further greening along the Old Shoreham Road frontage and a green roof.  The development will seek to achieve a BREEAM target of “Excellent”.

New Restaurants for Colonnades

Mountford Pigott is delighted to announce that the McDonalds drive-thru and Nando’s – which form part of our new restaurant development at the Colonnades Retail Park, Croydon – are open for business.

The 2-storey building, which replaces the old Gipsy Moth pub, comprises 3 units. Following a successful launch, the retail park’s management team is in talks with another operator to take the remaining unit. 

The building is a contemporary addition to the park, with a rectilinear form clad in industrial style materials, punctuated by picture frame elements which encapsulate windows. 

The wider scheme also involved extensive alterations to the existing car park and landscape to increase parking spaces in this thriving retail park.

Manchester project open for business

Mountford Pigott is pleased to announce that the Big Yellow Self Storage facility in Manchester is open for business.

This six-storey building has been designed with simple elements and clean straight lines drawing from the area’s considerable industrial heritage. The form of the building is created through the interplay of two rectilinear boxes. The lower box has a solid ‘concrete’ appearance. Some relief is created by angling the entrance screen wall towards the vehicle entrance – assisting building users to navigate the building. The upper box which is clad in Cor-ten steel adopts the same orientation but is pushed forward so as to create visual energy in the form.

A three-storey high glazed ‘cut-out’ has been formed on the prominent street corner to allow interaction with the public realm and to make the building’s function readily legible.  The deep reveals reinforce its solidity. The feature’s position corresponds to the focal point identified in our original site analysis.

Signage is incorporated into the building fabric. An uber-scale Big Yellow logo is fret cut into the Cor-ten cladding while the individual 3m high letters at street level leave little doubt of the building’s function.

The building is located in the Water Street Strategic Regeneration Area which is seeing other major investment and regeneration proposals coming forward.
