Our vision to transform Alban Gate into a welcoming, vibrant and inviting destination

Public consultation on proposals to refurbish Alban Gate

Arax Properties is pleased to present proposals for the much-needed and considered refurbishment of Sir Terry Farrell’s landmark postmodern building. The project team recognises the heritage of the building, and we want to work with the existing postmodern features to enhance and celebrate them. Our proposals do not involve any significant changes to the building; there will be no change to height or massing. On this website, you can find out more about our proposals and have your say on the future of this iconic site.

Our key principles include:

To transform Alban Gate into a welcoming, vibrant and inviting destination for workers, visitors and the local community.
