Grenadier Estates reveals hopes of a sustainable future for St Margaret’s in Exeter

Sustainable property developer Grenadier Estates has revealed its new plans for the future of a listed former school in Exeter. St Margaret’s closed its doors to pupils in 2013 when it became “financially unviable”, but the developer is set to breathe new life into the landmark buildings.

Grenadier’s Director of Property, Peter Quincey, said: “Grenadier is committed to creating visionary homes at St Margaret’s, and we are proud to announce the appointment of a team that will help us realise our vision for this unique site.”

Grenadier has been working closely with the team to ensure the special nature of the Grade II and Grade II* listed buildings will be protected and preserved during the development.

Original planning permission for the derelict St Margaret’s site was agreed in 2014, and revised plans are currently being discussed with planners. Grenadier hopes to secure planning for the final aspects of the design early in 2017, which will create 37 luxury homes on the site.

Project Architect: Nigel Holt – GJR Architects
Project Manager: Rob Lillicrap – Ravenslade
