Shot Tower, Chester*


An iconic development situated in the heart of Chester, The Shot Tower is a prime flagship residential development.

The project comprises 2 new build blocks and the restoration and redevelopment of this historic building which will form a key landmark for the entire city. The scheme consists of 72 units including 1 and 2 bed apartments, 2 and 3 bed duplexes and townhouses.

The tower, one of the oldest of just three remaining shot towers in the UK, stands at an imposing height of 40m and is the tallest structure in Chester. Utilising materials which provide visual depth but continue to enforce the industrial legacy of the site, The Shot Tower will encompass a wide range of materiality whilst boasting a prime canal-side location with waterfront views.

The works comprise extensive repair-work, restoration and redevelopment which will preserve this historic building for future generations and will invigorate this former derelict site and set a clear benchmark in design for upcoming developments within the city.
