Wates Construction has started on site at Stockport Council’s £45m leisure scheme, Redrock, in the town centre.
Redrock Stockport will provide 75,000 sq ft of leisure, retail and restaurants together with a 360-space multi-storey car park to be managed by NCP.
Occupiers already singed-up include The Light Cinema who will operate a 10-screen cinema as well as Pizza Express and Zizzi who will open restaurants as part of the scheme.
As part of the Redrock development works, the Bridgefield Street car park ramp will be removed on the weekend 16 and 17 April, subject to weather conditions.
Redrock is part of Stockport Council’s ‘Investing in Stockport’ programme, that is seeing around £900m invested into growth projects by the Council and its partners.
Caroline Simpson, corporate director for place management and regeneration at Stockport Council, said: “It is exciting to join Stockport at a time when plans for the town centre are becoming a reality. Stockport is a great town with so many strengths but we want it to grow even more and our Investing in Growth work is making this happen. Redrock Stockport will bring new restaurants and first class leisure facilities to the heart of the town centre for residents and visitors to enjoy.”
GVA and Lunson Mitchenall have been appointed as joint agents for the scheme.
