Nicholson Residences: Our Vision for St Helens' Newest Apartments

Rooted in the history of an ever-evolving neighbourhood, Nicholson Residences is a striking tribute to the heritage of The North West, interweaving past and present through stunning design and inspired creativity.

The Beecham Group plc was a British pharmaceutical company. It was once a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.
Beecham, after having merged with American pharmaceutical company SmithKline Beckman to become SmithKline Beecham, merged with Glaxo Wellcome to become GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). GSK still uses the Beechams brand name in the UK for its over-the-counter cold and flu relief products

The Beechams factory and office building, built between 1884 and 1887, was famous for producing the well-known Beechams pills.

It remains one of St Helens' most iconic buildings.

In 1994 the factory finally closed its doors, with the Beechams estate becoming a part of the St Helens College campus.



A Remarkable Tribute

Guided by a life-long passion and renowned reputation for re-interpreting urban districts through luxury modification, Paul Nicholson, CEO of Nicholson Group envisioned this opportunity with his thoughtful engagement with history, distinct interpretation of industrial forms, and creative expression of materials.


 “A building with a distinct sense of place and purpose.”
- Paul Nicholson
