It is being developed by London-based Soller Group.

Construction is anticipated to take up to 18 months, with developers hopeful of having the first apartments ready for occupation by late 2023 or early 2024.

Mike Olley, general manager of Westside Business Improvement District where the application site is, said: “We would welcome this new development and look forward to working with the Soller Group once this is approved and under way.

“The great news, assuming it all goes ahead, is that this will provide jobs for scores of construction workers during the build and then for dozens of staff once it opens.”
