Muse Developments and Warrington Council have launched the search for a contractor to build the 1,200-space multi-storey car park within the £107m Bridge Street Quarter, with a meet-and-greet event to be held on 19 October.
The 300,000 sq ft retail and leisure-led Bridge Street regeneration scheme will include a 13-screen multiplex cinema operated by Cineworld, a new 42,000 sq ft market hall, several family restaurants, 100,000 sq ft council offices, retail units and a public square.
The eight-storey car park designed by Leach Rhodes Walker will support the entire scheme. A planning application is due to be submitted in February 2016.
The multi-million pound construction contract will include the demolition of the existing car park, and associated highway works along Academy Way, Moulder Lane and Bank Street.
The Bridge Street scheme started on site earlier this year with the demolition of the former Time Square area adjacent to the Warrington Market hall, to make way for a temporary market hall. The market will move into this location in early 2017 during the demolition period and whilst the new, permanent £10m market hall is being constructed. At no time will the market cease to trade.
The new market building will open in 2019.
The meet-and-greet event will take place on Monday 19 October from 9am at Daresbury Park Hotel in Warrington. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register interest.
