Rose Avenue is now on site after considerable collaborative work between Platform Housing Group, Fellows and DJD Architects. This £3 million mixed-use development is the gateway to the Tolladine area of Worcester and has been in crucial need of redevelopment for some time.
This regeneration scheme will be split into two phases due to two commercial tenants (Rose Avenue Fryer and News Express) being kept fully operational throughout the process. The project has received plenty of input from the local community since the scheme commenced on site in December 2019 with Harper Group.
In order to enable the works, the first step was to relocate Rose Avenue Fryer into a temporary unit on the same side of Rose Avenue where the news agent is located, which allows works to start on the East Side of Rose Avenue.
Phase One therefore consists the demolition of existing commercial units and flats on the East side, and the new build of three commercial units with eight apartments above, two houses and three apartment blocks. Once the commercial units are fit for purpose, Rose Avenue Fryer will then be transferred into their brand-new unit with no disruption to their service.
Phase Two will continue with the demolition of the existing commercial units and flats on the West side of the road. In their place, two bungalows, five houses and five apartments will be constructed.
These works and the Tolladine Regeneration will provide the area with social housing and shared ownership homes in line with local demand and a new, safer environment for its surrounding community.
