Car park could go as more apartments planned for Green Street

Monday 04 July 2022


Plans are due to be unveiled to scrap a longstanding private car park of around 60 spaces on Green Street and replace it with 27 apartments.

Axis Mason wants to turn the open area on the Havre des Pas slipway-end of Green Street into 19 one-bed and eight two-bed apartments.

The architecture firm says the development will include 166m2 of amenity space for residents and lower-level parking for 37 vehicles, 36 bicycles and nine motorbikes. 

The Seymour Hotels-owned zone has been a car park for more than three decades – firstly, to accommodate both private renters and those staying at the former Hotel de la Plage, and later for those living in the apartments that the hotel became, and others in the area. 

Current developments on Green Street

The plans to create more new apartments continue a trend of development along the residential road, which was made one-way in late 2019.

Opposite the car park, work is underway on Andium’s La Collette Low Rise replacement of 73 one-bed, 65 two-bed and nine three-bed apartments.

At the other end of the road, the former Limes nursing home and Willow Court have been demolished to make way for 40 one-bedroom, 83 two-bedroom and seven three-bedroom Andium homes

Across from the former Willow Court, 1930s four-bedroom home Hazeldean is being turned into six flats.

Havre des Pas conservation zone

The development comes just after the previous States Assembly passed a new three-year Island Plan, which contained a provision to create ‘Conservation Areas’ that legally protect the unique character of historic island hotspots.

Among the priority zones identified by outgoing Environment Minister Deputy John Young was Havre des Pas.

Axis Mason said there would be a “green planted edge” between their proposed apartment block and Green Street, and promised a “design approach which responds to the unique architectural context of Havre des Pas.

Feedback invited

Architect Tom McAviney wrote a letter to residents on Friday, inviting them to an exhibition of the designs at the Ommaroo Hotel this Friday 8 July between 08:00 and 19:00. 

“In the spirit of public participation, the purpose of this letter is to give you the opportunity to attend the exhibition and meet with key stakeholders if you have any questions you would like to ask,” he wrote.

“The exhibition will include display boards illustrating the project proposal and drawings, and we would very much appreciate your valuable feedback.”
