Next Phase of Rochdale Town Centre Approved

Next Phase of Rochdale Town Centre Approved

The next phase of regeneration plans for Rochdale town centre have been approved by Rochdale Council.

The proposed plans for the mixed-use scheme being delivered by Genr8 Developments and Kajima in partnership with Rochdale Borough Council and Rochdale Development Agency, feature two blocks of apartments for private rent, a Hampton by Hilton hotel and a 44,000 sq ft office. The scheme will be constructed next to Rochdale Riverside retail and leisure development, which opened in 2020.

Hannan Associates are very pleased to be part of Gener8’s team for the ongoing regeneration of Rochdale Town Centre providing Building Services Engineering, BREEAM and Infrastructure consultancy.

Other members of the team include Cartwright Pickard, KKA Architecture, AEW Architects, Planit IE, Arcadis, Curtins Consulting and the main contractor is Willmott Dixon.

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.

Hannan Associates have over 35 years’ experience of urban regeneration projects, working with clients and design teams to develop strategic Building Services Engineering, Infrastructure and Sustainability solutions that help transform previously neglected areas of our towns and cities.

Regenerating Rochdale

Regenerating Rochdale

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.

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.
