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.
Hannan Associates are very pleased to be working as part of Genr8 Development’s team delivering this project. We are providing Building Services Design, Infrastructure & site monitoring duties. Other members of the team include TP Bennett, Arcadis, AECOM, Curtins Consulting and the main contractor is Willmott Dixon.
Once complete it is hoped that Rochdale Riverside will contribute £17m a year to the local economy.
