Tallest residential building will be ‘game-changer’ for Preston city living
The LoftHaus is a luxury high-rise residential development aims to enhance the cityscape of Preston with a new look. The natural environment has influenced and inspired various aspects of the design including both form and function.
The building features a 24-hour concierge, cinema room, a roof garden, and a ‘mega-kitchen’ where residents can socialise and cook together. Other facilities provided within the development include a gym, study zones, communal lounges, laundry rooms, bike store and superfast broadband.
David Cox said, “While many of the flats will be suitable for conventional owner occupiers, it’s also aimed at people who might work in the city and commute home to other cities at weekends, as well as key workers and people on temporary contracts or short-term assignments. Students at UCLan are also likely to be occupiers.”
“The idea is to provide space which is flexible enough to respond to changing and developing needs suggested by the people who use the building. It will create a new feature on the skyline of Preston and we have taken great care with the design to ensure the profile of the city is enhanced.”
