Derby Hospitals NHS Trust has agreed to sell eight acres of land at the former Derby Royal Infirmary site to the regeneration and development company UK Regeneration (UKR). UKR is now seeking planning permission to build a new urban village on the city centre site, now known as the Nightingale Quarter thanks to Florence Nightingale’s strong connections with the hospital. This development will feature around 300 homes for rent, plus retail, dining and other amenities.
Jackie Sadek is enthusiastic about working in Derby, saying:
The Nightingale Quarter is an exemplar site for UKR’s urban village developments planned for key locations across the UK. Importantly, UKR will retain the towers that form part of the original hospital. They add greatly to the character of the site and are a genuine local landmark.
