The maximum height of the proposed building will be 9
storeys which will step down to 3 storeys towards No. 38-47A Chapel Street. Thus, green roofs and green walls will be created within the set-backs and it will minimise the impact of the proposal over the existing residential units within the neighbouring buildings.
The sixth and the eighth floor levels will be well set back from the main elevations and they will have a minimum impact on the streets appearance. No interventions will be made on the existing London Plane Tree apart from small trimming interventions.
There will be taken all the necessary measures in order to fully protect the tree and its roots of any construction interventions that may damage it. The tree has been incorporated in the design and the area around the tree will be protected, by proposing permeable pavement as finishing material.
The new proposed building will mainly be constructed within the projection lines of the existing basement, in order to avoid any intersection with the tree’s roots.
