A 72 unit residential-led development incorporating the restoration of grade II* listed industrial heritage buildings together with new-build elements.

The scheme seeks to reinstate the Shot Tower as a celebrated Chester landmark and the site as an integral part of the wider regeneration of the city of Chester and the Boughton Canalside Conservation Area.

The new-build residential apartment blocks, sensitively designed and connected to the existing buildings, reflect the industrial heritage of the former lead-works using a palette of copper and grey standing seam metal cladding and Cheshire red brick.

Three townhouses will sit alongside a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments and duplex apartments across the new-build and listed elements. New public realm will connect the north and south side of the Shropshire Union Canal with the new business quarter and the rail station.
