Disused office block to receive new lease of life

Disused office block to receive new lease of life

O’LearyGoss Architects are pleased to announce that the final planning permission has been granted for the conversion of the dilapidated and disused Decourcy House on Upper York Street into 40 apartments. This 1970’s concrete clad office block situated on the edge of two conservation areas has been empty for over 5 years.

The building will be given a new lease of life with full refurbishment, the addition of full height windows, Juliet balconies and a roof top extension.

Regeneration of existing buildings is one of the the most sustainable forms of development as it avoids the CO2 emissions involved in the construction of a new structure and reduces waste involved in demolition.

The apartments will contribute to Bristol’s housing provision and add to the growing residential community in this important city centre location.
