Todd Architects’ scheme would create 119 homes
Plans to turn an underused car park above a shopping centre in Hertfordshire into 119 apartments have been lodged by Todd Architects.
The 8,800sq m project, which will sit above The Pavilions Shopping Centre in Waltham Cross, include a mix of one- and two-bed units, aa well as a number of three-bedroom homes.
The homes will be in two blocks connected by exterior walkways and will also include a communal landscaped roof terrace and garden.
John Chapman from Todd said: “We have worked closely with our client, Killultagh Estates Ltd, as well as Broxbourne Borough Council, to seize the opportunity and create a contemporary design that will turn underutilised car parking decks into a desirable and viable residential development.
“By bringing residents into the heart of the town this development has the potential to boost the high street and its hard-pressed retailers.”
Chapman said the project was part of an emerging trend to add residential elements to shopping centres to improve their viability.
The scheme is also close to the town’s train station - which will be on the Crossrail 2 line if it gets the go-ahead.
