A rare opportunity to live in Chester's most iconic waterside development. Grade II* authenticity with the epitome of luxury and elegance.


The Shot Tower is Chester’s most prominent landmark building, resting along the Shropshire Union Canal. Situated within a conservation area and nestled on the edge of the former industrial section of Chester, this development is directly opposite an award-winning Waitrose and perfectly placed just a short distance from a wide range of bars, shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.

Chester’s mainline train station is approximately 300 metres from The Shot Tower, offering direct access into Manchester and Liverpool. Public transport is also easily accessible and both the A55 and M56 result in a seamless commute into Chester city centre, North Wales, Manchester, Liverpool and beyond.


Combining pure industrial history with striking modern architecture, The Shot Tower is the only surviving leadworks of its kind, and soon to be an iconic development like no other.

This stunning Grade II* listed building will comprise a combination of one, two and three-bedroom luxury apartments, duplex apartments and converted 4-bed townhouses. The imposing 168 ft. Red-brick tower, along with the original Engine House and Whitechapel buildings will be retained and sympathetically restored using reclaimed brickwork to enforce the industrial legacy of the site. These historical elements are complemented by two modern new structures housing the apartments to create a striking canal-side landscape in the heart of Chester.

Each property has been carefully considered with space maximized and a high level of specification included as standard throughout the scheme. Highlights include;

Fully fitted kitchens
Bosch appliances as standard
Villeroy & Bock sanitary ware
Porcelanosa tiling
Flooring to all units included as standard
Secure video entry system to each apartment
Storage space in each apartment
Nest remote enabled electric heating systems
24 hour CCTV monitoring
Heritage centre at the base of the tower
Courtyard sculpture produced by local artist
