Plan to turn empty office space into 50 new apartments

First published in News

A BASINGSTOKE housing association is bidding to transform an empty office into more than 50 new apartments.

Sentinel Housing Association, based in Kingsclere Road, has purchased Dextra Court, in Chapel Hill and is planning to convert the building into 56 new apartments.

The premises, which has been empty since November 2013, was previously occupied by Friends Life, a pension and insurance provider, before the company closed its Basingstoke branch.

Sentinel has been working with Kenn Scaddan Associates Limited, an architect that specialises in redevelopment projects with housing associations, to prepare floor plans for the proposed refurbishment.

The housing association now plans to apply to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council for permitted development rights to convert the building.

Mike Shepherd, Sentinel’s development director, said: “One of our ambitions is to build a wide range of homes and these new apartments will offer local people the convenience of living right in the centre of town.”

If approved, the new apartments will complement additional development projects by Sentinel, which has unveiled plans to build nearly 600 homes at the neighbouring former Eli Lilly site.

That's a bit harsh. Very funny, but harsh.

More housing for Sentinel. Why are people constantly complaining about no affordable housing being built, when Basingstoke is getting so much?

Minus 28 votes and counting. For a post that essentially pokes a bit of harmless fun at the Gazette. I smell a rat.

The Gazette is big enough to defend itself. My negative vote was for you poking fun at Centennial Centennial.

I can live with that Sam. But JJ38JJ is right, that high a negative score is suspicious. You really think Centennial Centennial is a real person?

This is a wonderful idea for office space in the U.K. In the U.S., Bushama would grab it for government purposes.
