Igloo submits plans for Sunderland city centre regen
Proposals for 132 homes under first phase of 1,000-home Vaux Brewery redevelopment
Igloo has submitted plans for the first phase of the 1,000-home redevelopment of the former Vaux Brewery site on the banks of the river Wear in Sunderland.
The developer has put in a planning application for 132 ‘ultra-sustainable’ zero-carbon homes which are intended to be built out in time for the Sunderland Future Living Expo scheduled for 2023.
The scheme, designed by architects Proctor and Matthews and MawsonKerr, will include 91 houses and 41 flats, and marks the first part of the redevelopment of the Vaux site.
The site is itself just one part of a wider Riverside Sunderland plan designed to create homes for 2,500 people and job locations for 10,000 workers.
Igloo is acting as development manager on behalf of the city council which owns the site.
