The proposal for the site of the existing Stafford and Revere Hotels at numbers 14 to 28 Kensington Place is for complete redevelopment of the site, with change of use from hotels to residential, with some ground floor commercial space, two levels of car parking (at lower ground floor and basement levels) and plant.
The residential use is divided between 130no. 1, 2 and 3 bedroom flats which are organised around two external courtyard spaces. The courtyards serve as a part of the private ground floor circulation space for the flats at upper levels and as amenity space for the ground floor flats and as a visual amenity for the upper levels of flats. As the blocks rise the set backs provide a series of roof terraces which afford further external amenity space for the flats.
Three commercial units on the Kensington Place frontage are flanked by the large openings into the courtyards. The commercial units will compliment the existing commercial uses on Kensington Place and help to sustain the street as part of a mixed use neighbourhood.
Pedestrian and cycle access is off Kensington Place – helping to maintain footfall and activity on the street. This was an aim agreed at the outset with the States of Jersey Planning Department; that the redevelopment of the site would focus circulation and public frontage onto Kensington Place as part of a strategy to regenerate the street.
