Harbour master conversion proposed

The harbour master’s building on the Brayford Waterfront could soon become a modern two-storey restaurant if proposals are approved.

Investors in Lincoln and Brayford Trust submitted a planning application with the City of Lincoln Council to revamp the ageing waterfront building.

Artsist impressions (pictured) of the building depict the conversion featuring large windows and outside seating area.

The building has been designed by Stem Architects of Lincoln.

The architects say the building would have vertical standing zinc-coloured aluminium panels located at ground level to protect against potential vandalism, and a cantilevered timber clad tube-like element that wraps around the first floor level.

A pressed metal window lining to picture frames the glazing to the east and a glazed curtain walling system to the west maximises views of the Brayford Pool and surrounding buildings.

The roof would also be constructed of standing seam aluminium and these features will provide the harbour master facades with a dynamic aesthetic.

Chartered surveyors Banks Long & Co are handling the planning application and advertise the leasehold for the 354 sq m site on their website.

The conversion could be finished by Christmas and the surveyors say they have received strong interest in the building already.
