Trent Basin to provide homes for healthy living
Nottingham has been working hard on regenerating industrial parts of the city into healthy living spaces. This includes the Trent Basin project where the developer is Blueprint.
Trent Basin represents an early and crucial phase of a major waterside renaissance project for the city. The area of Nottingham Waterside is one of the city's greatest but least developed assets. The Trent Basin site has a long waterside frontage and an inland harbour that in its hey day helped to create a busy port. The site is close to Colwick Park, has attractive views over the Trent to Lady Bay and is no more than 10 minutes by bike from the city centre.
The project will provide a mix of contemporary high quality low energy homes. Five hundred are planned including both houses and apartments.
The vision is for a sustainable neighbourhood with tall elegant houses fronting well designed streets and a distinct identity with a strong sense of place. Open views over water and green spaces will reinforce mental wellbeing.
