Rochdale’s new town centre retail and leisure quarter Rochdale Riverside is due to open on the 10th April 2020 and we think it’s looking brilliant! What a transformation!
When complete the complex will provide 24 retail and leisure units including a six screen Reel Cinema and a Hollywood Bowl Puttstars crazy golf course. The latest occupiers to join the scheme are restaurant chain Nando’s, luxury dessert chain Heavenly Desserts and health and beauty retailer Superdrug.
Our team are providing building services design consultancy for the base build, including Part L analysis for each of the buildings.
Hannan Associates are extremely proud to be part of the team delivering this project that will help transform Rochdale’s commercial landscape and give its residents a town centre they can be proud of.
Once a thriving boom town of the industrial revolution and birthplace of the co-operative movement, Rochdale’s history, architecture and geographic location make it an important Greater Manchester town. However, following the decline of its cotton mills and manufacturing industry the town suffered economic downturn and neglect.
In a bid to turn the fortunes of this town around, Rochdale Borough Council have been actively working to improve the town centre for shoppers, visitors and businesses with a £250 million regeneration programme.
One of several projects undertaken as part of this masterplan is Rochdale Riverside, a new 200,000 sq ft retail and leisure quarter where occupiers will include Marks and Spencer, H&M, JD Sorts, River Island, Next, New Look and Boots. The retail complex will also feature a six-screen Reel Cinema. The project is progressing well on site and is due for completion Spring 2020.
Once complete it is hoped that Rochdale Riverside will contribute £17m a year to the local economy.
