Ashford Development




Located in the bustling centre of Ashford, the Crown Building represents a prime example of adaptive reuse and urban regeneration. As a former HMRC office building, it stood as a symbol of bureaucratic function until Consensus Capital secured planning permission for its conversion into residential apartments.

This innovative project marked one of the first "permitted developments" in the local authority area, paving the way for future revitalisation efforts. With its completion in 2015, the Crown Building now stands as a beacon of modernity and affordability, offering 25 modern homes tailored to the needs of the community in partnership with Moat Homes.
