Lipman Properties has applied to add 36 flats to Dukesbridge House in Reading.

The developer already has Permitted Development Rights (PDR) to convert the building’s offices, close to Duke Street Bridge, into 77 flats.

But the latest application to Reading Borough Council is to alter and extend the ends of the building and add three storeys of flats to the top.

The proposed PDR conversion of the riverside building, constructed in 1989, relates purely to the self-contained offices and its car parking at lower ground level.

Some small changes to those proposals are included in the latest scheme.

Lipman’s team includes Emre Arolat Architecture as architectural designers and masterplanners, Pegasus as planning consultant and Stantec which worked on air quality, flood risk assessment, transport and ecology.
