About this project

Francis Street
Designed in collaboration with Chris Hewitt architect. This was Blackpool’s first modern apartment block. It took two years to get through planning but now commands Cocker Square.

When completed, the building was bought in its entirety by Windmill Housing Association and sold on as a “shared ownership scheme”. The building was considered to be a leading scheme in the aspirations of Blackpool’s regeneration.
