THE DEVELOPMENT

Chapmans Yard will infill a long-term car park site with an 'I'-shaped block comprising 111 one- and two-bedroom apartments spread over five to seven storeys.

The brownfield site, long lost to demolition during the mid-20th century when the site once housed dense back-to-back and terraced housing, will re-introduce frontages to both Upper Gough Street and Chapmans Passage for the first time in a generation.

Designed around two internally landscaped courtyard spaces, the new community will benefit from biodiverse roofs, secure storage for c. 56 cycles, and a fifth-floor amenity space offering exercise spaces and views across the city – with select apartments also equipped with balconies.

Recognising the emergence of new developments in the area, Chapmans Yard proposes a mix of 56 one- and 50 two-bedroom apartments (1-4 persons), alongside 5 two-bedroom duplex townhouses to cater to every lifestyle – 11 apartments are designated ‘affordable’ (25% of which would be ‘First Homes’).

This will be complemented by a new pedestrianised thoroughfare to Chapmans Passage, (eventually) stitching together the fabric of the street to provide fluid access to the historic Peace Gardens.
