The proposal for the site of 45-47 York Street, 351 Argyle Street involves the erection of a nine storey mixed-use development consisting of 54 flats with ground floor, and basement retail and storage space.

The proposed development seeks to be compatible with the overall integrity of the area in terms of mass and scale. It will also complement the planned new Jumeirah International Hotel on the east corner of York Street and Argyle Street.

The building is split into two sections which are based on the main accommodation elements of the building. The differing qualities of York and Argyle Street further emphasises this. Along York Street a seven storey masonry element is formed whilst at Argyle Street junction a metallic section mediates between the new and existing street facade.

In terms of programme, scale and handling of materials the proposed development intends to reinforce the local area and identity.

Current status:

Awaiting planning permission for revised layout.
