Nottingham’s first collaborative development. The future of homes is happening at Sneinton Market.
Fruit Market is an ambitious energy efficient development at Sneinton Market in Nottingham city centre. It’s the first development of its kind in the city and one of the first in the UK. If you have ambitions to design your own sustainable home, read on.
WHAT IS A COLLABORATIVE DEVELOPMENT?
A ‘collaborative development’ is a refreshing approach to building new, privately owned homes. The architect works with you to customise your house design to suit your lifestyle. You collaborate with your neighbours and the architect to design and determine shared spaces and facilities around the development.
The process is similar to designing and building your own house, with two big differences. Firstly, you build as a group which is more efficient and creates a scale of economy. Secondly, the developer and the architect use their expertise to navigate the planning system and facilitate the process from beginning to end.

Fruit Market is enabled by Blueprint, the company behind some of the city’s most innovative and successful low-energy housing projects including Green Street in The Meadows.
