Project Description

This project will support the redevelopment of a strategic brownfield site to create new workspace and city living in the heart of the City Centre. The scheme will address the unfulfilled demand for start-up and move-on space as part of a portfolio of new workspace to serve different business needs across the City.

This is alongside a new city living offer which will provide sustainable accommodation in an accessible location adjacent to the main transport hub, the regenerated Cornhill Quarter and in close proximity to the University. Towns Funding will support feasibility and design to enable this scheme to proceed.

Project Rationale

  • Supports the regeneration of a strategic brownfield site identified within the City Masterplan
  • Responds to a need for workspace and city living provision within a sustainable setting
  • Links with the wider programme of interventions to support Covid-19 recovery and aligns with clean growth with opportunities to integrate technologies to optimise ongoing operational costs and reduce the building’s carbon footprint
