All systems go for Stretford Mall’s King Street rebirth 

With funding in place and a contractor appointed, Bruntwood and the local council can press ahead with their plans to modernise the town’s high street. 

Designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley, the first phase of the transformation of Stretford Mall will see the former King Street shopping street re-established by removing the roof of the shopping centre. 

A market hall, the refurbishment of the multistorey car park, and the creation of a public square also feature within the Bruntwood and Trafford Council’s plans. 

“Transforming the heart of Stretford and creating a community hub that promotes collaboration is our main driving focus for the re-development of King Street,” said Andrea George, town centre and consumer brands director at Bruntwood. 

“The high street is an integral part of any town and we want to revitalise King Street to give the people of Stretford a town centre that provides for their needs while also creating a dynamic and inspiring environment.” 

Caddick Construction has been appointed to deliver the project, with completion expected in summer 2024. 

The design team includes architect Studio Mutt, Exterior Architecture, DW Consultants, Hydrock, Avison Young and Civic Engineers. 

The King Street proposals are one of the projects to receive funding from the government’s £830m Future High Streets Fund. Last year, Trafford Council received £17.6m funding to regenerate and transform Stretford town centre.    

“This first phase of development is another milestone in the redevelopment of Stretford for the local community,” said Cllr Andrew Western, leader of Trafford Council. 

“The extensive development of King Street and the wider Stretford area will significantly increase connectivity by introducing green and open spaces where people can come together and interact.” 

Future phases of the 27-acre Stretford Mall masterplan feature up to 800 homes and 140,000 sq ft of commercial space.     

“With King Street playing a large role in the plans, the wider masterplan will enhance the quality of life for Stretford residents while injecting a surge of businesses into the community to boost the local ecosystem,” Western added.
