The derelict Davenport Hotel on the A6 in Stockport looks set to be demolished and replaced with a five-storey apartment block, brought forward by Clowes Developments.
The hotel has been empty for a number of years since it was sold for around £800,000 in 2014. Now, developer Clowes is looking to bring forward 39 apartments on the site, all within a five-storey block, designed by architect Cartwright & Gross.
Access to the apartments, which are split between 20 two-beds and 19 one-beds, will remain via Corbar Road, while there will be 30 car parking spaces provided and a 4,000 sq ft communal space at the rear of the building.
The one-beds will cover approximately 463 sq ft while the two-beds total 678 sq ft.
The project has received backing from Stockport Council’s planners, who have recommended it for approval when it goes to committee. It has been recommended for the go-ahead subject to a Section 106 agreement, which includes a £63,000 provision towards off-site open space in the borough.
The professional team on the project also includes Seymour Planning, Construction Design Solutions, transport consultant Vectos, and TEL Landscape Architects.
