Counterslip Tramways Generator Building

to get new lease of life. It originally housed the generator of the very first tram system. The original 1890s arched-front entrance on Counterslip is currently sealed off and will be re-instated with new glass doors at street level. These will open into a double-height foyer, allowing workers and visitors to enjoy the original scale of the internal spaces. The interior of the building will contain five storeys of Grade A office space, designed to make the most of the views across the harbour as well as meeting current British Council of Offices standards. The £12million renovation, will create 28,300 sq ft of work space for up to 300 people. Application 17/06919/F, 17/06920/LA show some lovely images. Expiry date 14 Feb 2018.
