Photos show the vast scale of a project to build most than 300 flats on a former car park behind Nottingham Railway Station.

The development in Queens Road was given the green light back in 2019 by Nottingham City Council.

Work started in January last year and the vast structure of the new block is in place.

Once complete, the new building will house 348 apartments.

Grainger, a company which provides rented homes, agreed to buy the site for £55.6m in 2020.

Speaking previously, Helen Gordon, chief executive of Grainger, said: “Nottingham has a vibrant community with a strong and growing demand for renting and our Queens Road development will offer renters in the city a great home, great value, flexible and long-term agreements, and a range of resident amenities, including co-working space and superfast highspeed broadband included within the rent.”

The company agreed buy the site from Blocwork LLP, a joint venture between Network Rail and Bloc Group set up to develop rail side sites nationally.

When it was reported the site had been bought, local residents had mixed views on the scheme – and one said “it should also help bring more money to the city”.

Meanwhile, work has also started on a separate project to transform a derelict office spot, in nearby Traffic Street, into a £35m student flats complex.

It comes after plans were put forward for a vast new building reaching up to 20 levels in height in Wilford Road, as well as separate proposals for a new colossal office block next to HMRC’s Unity Square off Queensbridge Road.
