Project Description

Name – Tunnel Street
Client – The Brookfield Tunnel Street Holding Ltd.
Location – Grouville, Jersey

This mixed-use redevelopment in the centre of St Helier will provide 285 apartments and townhouses over a semi-basement car park. The scheme, located on the former gasworks site will include ground floor service retail space and extensively landscaped public open areas.

The proposed development will be a collection of perimeter blocks fronting all edges of the site boundary and will provide a key through-route connecting the north edge of the site with Tunnel Street. The buildings are proposed at a scale, mass and height that will achieve an appropriate balance of density, open space and outlook to ensure a viable and sustainable re-use of this brownfield site.

Selected design features, elements and materials will resonate with recognisable elements in the wider townscape, which will build on the existing sense of place and character. In addition, the interaction of different design elements: corner treatments, balconies, colours, materials and recesses will add to the visual quality of the development and create a distinctive characterful place.
