We provided a full range of development services over an 8 year period, acting as the Council’s lead adviser. This encompassed masterplanning, OJEU led developer procurement and negotiating commercial terms.
When the impact of the recession threatened the viability of the project we intervened to reduce the scale of the retail component, increase the scale of the leisure component and introduce a combined grade car parking/phasing strategy.
This £90m, 350,000 ft² retail and leisure development by British Land/Stanhope, sitting immediately adjacent to the city centre was awarded the 2014 Gold Award for the best New Centre in the UK by BCSC. It has been carefully masterplanned to ensure that it fully integrates with and strengthens the established city centre.
