A major renovation of a former warehouse in Preston city centre looks set for the go ahead.Advertisement
Shops, flats and a restaurant were all due to be built in the converted building at 35 Glovers Court.
Manchester-based Reid Architects took on the formerly approved plans for the street and re-applied for planning permission.
There would be nine two-bedroom flats and 21 one-bedroom flats within the complex which is not far from the former Booths offices which themselves are in the process of being converted into apartments.

The building would be increased in height from four storeys to six as part of the proposal.
Councillors have been recommended by planning officers to approve the proposals.
They state: “No objections have been received in relation to the proposed development and it is considered that the principle of a mixed use development within a city centre accords with the development plan.”
A previous scheme, by David Cox Architects, was granted planning permission in 2015.
