Flats above fashion icon Paul Smith’s very first boutique hit the market


In 2017, Sir Paul Smith closed his Byard Lane store.

It was the designer’s original premises in the city, in fact his very first boutique.

Tucked away on a side street that attracted those looking for the style of the man who became Nottingham’s most successful fashion designer, the store was closed in favor of an imposing building in Low Pavement named Willoughby House, which remains the designer’s outlet in Nottingham to the city.

Now you can live in an apartment above where the first boutique showcasing the style of the Beeston-born fashion icon was located in 1970.

Named City Lofts, a wide door next to the original boutique provides access to some of the apartments on this site.

Three of the seven newly converted luxury homes are above where the store once operated (now home to The Tap House), while Apartments 4, 5, 6 and 7 are in the Weekday Cross section of the development.
