Planning application submitted for IQ Exchange building at Sneinton Market

July 7th 2020

A planning application has been submitted to Nottingham City Council for the IQ Exchange building on Lower Parliament Street and Gedling Street which proposes adding an extra 85 student bedrooms and the replacement of the retail units on Gedling Street.

There has been a lively reaction to the application on social media as the retail units on Gedling Street are occupied by popular local businesses the Murat Food Centre, OneBC Clothing and GB Cafe and some people consider some parts of the existing property to be of architectural interest.

The designs by architects tp bennett sees the current oval building on Lower Parliament street being increased by two stories. The Gedling Street frontage with its distinctive wavy roof canopy has been redesigned in the plans, with an additional two floors above for further student accommodation. Matching the proposed redevelopment on Gedling Street, there are plans to also add to the rear of the building facing on to Boston Street where the redevelopment would allow for disabled access to the student accommodation.
