PHASE one of The Island Quarter has won a prestigious Royal Institute of Architects (RIBA) Regional Award in the East Midlands for the thoughtful design by our architect partners Jestico + Whiles.
The awards recognise buildings that display a commitment to designing spaces for the improvement and enhancement of people’s lives.
The 1TIQ building design ambition delivered by Jestico and Whiles was to incorporate a historic, industrial influence which didn’t compromise on quality and we are delighted to have won this award.

We’re delighted to also share our new masterplan for The Island Quarter after months of consultations with Nottingham City Council and local people.
Visit our dedicated page to explore the new masterplan and find out more about what we’re building in the heart of this vibrant and pioneering city.

We are delivering

Acres of green space

From tree nurseries to miles of green paths, we’re creating 11 acres of green space in the centre of our city.

A multi-generational community

We’re building new housing to suit everyone – from student acommodation to family homes.


We’re restoring Grade II listed buildings to create a new creative hub in the heart of the East Midlands.

At The Island Quarter we’re setting the scene for something really different… We have amplified the overarching theme of an ‘island’ into an ‘archipelago’ of mixed use accommodation set within a verdant, nature-filled landscape.”
