Crown Building: Location: 34-36 Wellesley Road, Ashford, Kent
34-36 Wellesley Road is the centre of Ashford in Kent and this project was a conversion of a former HMRC office building into residential apartments. Ashford is a fast growing commuter town in the south east of England with excellent transport links to London and mainland Europe thanks to the Ashford International Station on the high-speed rail line HS1. Consensus Capital secured the planning permission as one of the first "permitted developments" in the local authority area and the conversion of the building was designed to the specific requirements of the housing association Moat Homes. The refurbishment and conversion completed in 2015 and the building now provides 25 modern affordable homes.
