Sector: Residential

Sugar Quay House, Plymouth

Project Description

The residential accommodation is targeted at the luxury private sector and is designed in a ‘T’ arrangement. This offers each unit a water view and distance to give a sense of open space from existing residents.

The development consists of 19 storeys over the ground floor commercial plinth. With 175 residential units arranged in a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, restaurant units and an underground car park for approx. 100 vehicles

On the 16th floor there is a private residential terrace, with unprecedented views over the Harbour

The roof of the commercial plinth provides both private amenity for the residents and a slightly lowered seating area shared by the commercial units. Public/private space makes the most of the afternoon and evening sun

Roof water runoff from the buildings is managed via a system of guttering and associated downpipes and routed into a below ground dedicated surface water system which route flows towards the outfall to Sutton Harbour. Flows from external paved areas at ground floor will be managed by a system of channel/slot drains to convey the surface water to the main below ground drainage system for outfall to Sutton Harbour

The site lies within Flood Zone 3, having a 1 in 200 or greater annual probability of sea flooding in any year.
