Alpha House is a large three storey office building which fronts onto Countesthorpe Road with a large area of hardstanding and car parking accessed from Orange Street. The overall site comprises 0.37 acres (0.15 ha) and provides a brownfield redevelopment opportunity. The site sits in an area of primarily traditional terraced and semi-detached residential housing but is also adjacent to St Marys RC Church and vicarage. The site provides a dual aspect site which will enable a new development of residential units to integrate into the immediate surroundings.
South Wigston is a large village to the south of Leicester, forming part of the Oadby and Wigston district of Leicestershire. Located on the outskirts of Leicester and just 5 miles from the centre, the existing site at Alpha House and the planned development is well located to benefit from access to excellent transport links and good local amenities.
0.37 acres with the opportunity to secure a residential development. The development will deliver:
- 8 x two bedroom apartments
- 6 x one bedroom apartments
- 2 x B1 offices comprising 1,830 sq ft of useable floor space
Oadby and Wigston is famed for being the home of Leicester Racecourse and is a thriving town offering a wealth of shops, including convenience stores, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and an M&S Foodhall to support the local residents - all less than a ten-minute drive away. The Parade is also home to well-known shopping names, alongside banks, a post office, dentist, doctors’ surgeries and much more.
Oadby Wigston also offers a wonderful choice of places to eat including restaurants, takeaways, pubs and cafés, all of which would support this planned residential development.
We believe that the B1 Commercial space could also be converted into residential space, subject to varying the existing planning consent.
This will increase the scope of the residential development and make for a more deliverable, attractive and viable scheme.
