Neil Grinnall Homes has acquired the former Newport Street bus station site in Worcester city centre, which is set to be transformed into a landmark residential scheme of 84 luxury apartments. Situated next to the Bridge Street Conservation Area, the strategic location will enable views of the River Severn to be enjoyed from more than 50 per cent of apartments whilst the core-shopping district is only moments away.

Due to be launched in 2005, this scheme will make way for a new contemporary design-led building rising four stories that will also act as a new education trial for Worcester with wall-mounted plaques along Newport Street revealing its ancient roots. Two mixed-used development units at street level will also be incorporated within the £22 million landmark scheme, which has been designed by award winning architects, Turner Wolford Sharp.
This scheme has been brought to fruition in conjunction with Countrywide Homes with the help of English Heritage, archaeological experts, The Environment Agency and Council planners, who are all in agreement that this architecturally significant development will dramatically enhance its historic waterside setting.
