Genr8 has released artist’s impressions of how its proposed Rochdale Riverside retail and leisure scheme could look, ahead of the submission of a planning application in the coming weeks.
The development is set to be 200,000 sq ft in size, designed by architect TP Bennett.
Rochdale Riverside is a part of Rochdale town centre’s £250m regeneration programme, which so far has seen the re-opening of the River Roch and the construction of Rochdale Council’s customer service centre, library and office building, Number One Riverside.
The council-backed scheme will contain around 25 retail and leisure units, including restaurants and cafes.
High street retail giants Next and M&S have already signed up to operate from Rochdale Riverside, with Reel planning to open a six screen cinema in the development.
Council leader Richard Farnell, said: “This fantastic development will bring top high street names into Rochdale for the first time and give our early evening economy a much needed shot in the arm. A vibrant town centre with lots of shops and restaurants is something our residents have wanted for a long time and this scheme will deliver all this and more.”
Rochdale Riverside is being delivered in a joint venture between Genr8 Developments, and Kajima Partnerships. The agent is Cheetham & Mortimer.
