Designed by local practice Architecture 2B, the city-centre project will see the existing pub turned into two town houses and a 45m 2apartment which will sit above a new delicatessen.
The original outhouses will be cleared and replaced by a three-storey white rendered 'box' which will house six micro flats.
The firm was given the go-ahead for the contentious scheme despite protests from the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) which mustered an impressive 413-signature petition in a bid to save the inn.
Describing the £450,000 project, practice chief Nick Brown said: '[The] existing building [will be] returned to its original form, unsightly extensions being stripped away.
'The new building is designed to reflect the strong industrial heritage of the-area with its strong form and simplicity of detail.'
Dubbed the Tao project by developer CITU developments, the new building will boast deep hardwood louvres.
Brown added: 'Simplicity has also been the watchword internally, where service areas have been located to one side and spaces defined by full-height translucent glass panels.'
