Project: Chance Glassworks Phase 1
Whilst we have a vision for transforming the whole of the glassworks, our focus now is on what we are calling Phase 1.
At the centre of Phase 1 is the Seven Storey Building, the most iconic part of the site, which everyone will recognise. The development will include the adjacent former Chance Engineering Workshop and the storage yard
The Seven Storey Building and which provide the bases of Phase 1 of the development – a blend of restoration of heritage buildings and new build.
Phase I will consist of 41 residential units, 906 sq.m. of educational space 1946 sq.m. of enterprise space, a Heritage Centre, a café and archiving facilities.
