2 Snowhill Plaza is a 48-storey (G, UG + 46fl) build to rent development comprising 462 new one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes.

Modernist-inspired and utilising a lower-carbon approach, 2 Snowhill Plaza will provide residents with easily-accessible communal functions across four different levels of the building.

This will include a modernist plinth with a multi-levelled entrance containing a lobby, cycle workshop, and co-working areas. Venturing upwards, lounges and pocket gardens will be created at chamfered corners in the design at levels one, 14 & 22.

Additional semi-covered space will also be on offer at level 46, allowing for spectacular views across the city.

A new managed east-west pedestrian route will be created; one that strenghtens and improves accessibility from Snow Hill to Weaman Street for the first time since the 19th century. It is also here where a flexible commercial unit will be formed.

In total, 2 Snowhill Plaza will accommodate 228 one (1-2 persons), 189 two (3-4 persons), and 45 three-bedroom apartments (5 persons), along with 486 cycles, 2 off site disabled, 2 off-site motorcycle & 2 off-site car club spaces.
