Developer’s plan to turn riverside Lincoln offices into flats

City centre living for young professionals

A developer wants to turn a Lincoln riverside office block into nearly 50 flats.

Doncaster-based Engineered for Living has applied to the City of Lincoln Council to change Waterside House, on Waterside North, into 43 one-bedroom and five two-bedroom flats.

Documents submitted to the council said the plans will provide “affordable living aimed at young professionals, post graduates and key workers wishing to access the property ladder and enjoy a city centre lifestyle”.

They said the four and five storey building conversion will provide an alternative to shared homes.

The applicant plans to provide 25 car parking spaces, but said the distance from the flats to the city centre will look to discourage car ownership.

The regeneration of Waterside North is part of the council’s local plan which aims to encourage footway/cycleway provision.

The conversion, said the developer, will require no new additions to the building.
