A planning application for a development in the centre of Hull has been submitted to the city council.

The application is for Shirethorn House and the adjacent land and buildings at the corner of Ferensway and Spencer Street. It has been submitted by FFH Ferensway and supported by Ferensway Developments.

It comprises more than 250 residential and retail units and an internal winter garden for residents. The homes will feature one, two and three-bed apartments, as well as townhouses.

Plans outline that the development will incorporate the look of nearby historic buildings and feature modern elements, including three towers – one 14 storeys in height.

Hull City Council said it welcomes the proposals saying it “demonstrates the continued confidence in the Hull economy”.

FFH Ferensway director Steve Crane says: “Hull City Council still has a positive and forward-looking view and that has provided us with confidence to invest in the city.

“Collaboration has been key to making this project a reality and the feedback we’ve had so far has been fantastic. This site is at a key gateway to the city centre and it will be a fitting addition to the city council’s plans to regenerate Hull.”

Daren Hale, Hull City Council’s portfolio holder for economic investment and regeneration, added: “Hull City Council has ambitious plans to regenerate the city centre and this development will be key to realising those ambitions.

“This project will be a striking addition to Hull and it will provide high-quality homes as people look to move back into the city centre once again.”
