Simon Broster Info

An iconic development situated in the heart of Chester, The Shot Tower is a prime flagship residential development from Whitecroft Group. The restoration and redevelopment of this historic building is expected to form a key landmark for the entire city. The tower, one of the oldest of just three remaining shot towers in the UK, stands at an imposing height of 40m and is the tallest structure in Chester. This is undeniably one of Whitecroft’s most exciting projects to date.


Whitecroft aim to sympathetically redevelop The Shot Tower site whilst retaining its originality. New wings will complement the historic Grade II* listed tower and reflect the sites' industrial heritage. With a red brick construction, reinfornced by grey rain screen to the eastern face and a copper metal facia to the west, the new development with perfectly blend with the connecting bridge across to the neighbouring Waitrose.   


Utilising materials which provide visual depth but continue to enforce the industrial legacy of the site, The Shot Tower will encompass a wide range of materiality whilst boasting a prime canal-side location with waterfront views. Extensive repair-work, restoration and redevelopment will preserve this historic building for future generations and will invigorate this former derelict site and set a clear benchmark in design for upcoming developments within the city.
