Former Electric Empire Site

The development is built on the site of a former silent movie cinema known as the Electric Empire. The old Grade 2 listed frontage was retained and forms a gated archway leading to the new mixed use scheme which comprises 28 new build apartments, office accommodation and a restaurant. These are located in three detached blocks linked with open sided and covered walkways and a central staircase and lift shaft. The three and four storey blocks were traditionally constructed whilst the five storey block was built using reinforced concrete frame and flat slab construction. All three blocks were supported on continuous flight auger piled foundations and reinforced concrete ground beams.
