A plan to turn a former preschool into studio apartments and lofts has been submitted to planners.

The Bermuda Housing Corporation said it wanted to convert the old St David’s preschool on Battery Road and a building next door into 14 homes.

The corporation proposed seven single-bedroom lofts, six studio apartments, a two-bedroom villa and, additionally, a maintenance office.

Keino Furbert-Jacobs of the BHC wrote a note in the application.: “This is one of a series of instalments which targets accommodations for active singles, ie professionals, seniors, active and semi-active adults.” The project would also include the construction of a new water tank, cess pits and landscaping of the area. The work would also include the removal of the pavement separating the two buildings.
