We are pleased to share that the planning application for 40 King Street has been approved. We recently submitted a planning application for an exciting, adaptive re-use project in the heart of St Helier.
The regeneration proposals are a contemporary re-interpretation of the historic building that previously occupied the site and was home to Jersey’s first telephone exchange. The proposals include change of use from retail to residential use at first and second floors, a new zinc-clad mansard roof extension and an enhanced retail unit at ground floor. The addition of a third floor allows for a total of five new 2-Bed apartments. The new façade will incorporate a unique public art installation in the form of a ceramic frieze depicting binary and morse code as used in the pioneering days of early telephony.
We’re thrilled to be part of this adaptive re-use project and are looking forward to seeing 40 King Street come to life.
