The scheme for our clients Benmore Octopus Healthcare, marks a new future of the site. A landmark in the city, the iconic building at the centre of the site will be sensitively transformed into quality accommodation for a range of primary healthcare services to include GP, pharmacy, optician and much more.

In addition, the site will have residential and nursing care located close to an established community, as well as assisted living spaces providing quality transitionary and specialist care for those in later life.

It will boast a thriving location for all ages to enjoy with the addition of eateries, hotel, gym, retail and leisure facilities all located along a picturesque plaza.
