Once developed, the area will create a new commercial district and the film has been created over the past 13 months as the second phase of development takes shape. This will include a 50,000 sq ft office with ground floor retail taken by Sainsburys, a Holiday Inn Express hotel set around new green spaces. Muse Developments is working in partnership with Stockport Council to deliver the scheme.
The video was recorded from a camera placed on the top floor of the NCP multi-storey car park, completed in 2014 as part of the first phase of development.
The external phase of the buildings are now complete with the full Phase 2 due for completion at the end of October.
Grade A offices will offer up to 10,850 sq ft floorplates over four storeys. The internal fit out of the new hotel is underway, ready to open to the public in December. Sainsbury’s will begin their fit out this month.
Major improvements to the road layout and work on new public realm outside the station are also nearing completion. An improved taxi rank opened over the summer, with a new drop-off area and public space due to open in December. Work is currently underway laying the granite setts and planting, creating an attractive pedestrianised gateway outside the station.
Cushman & Wakefield and CBRE are appointed as joint agents for the scheme, the architect is Aedas RHWL and the contractor for this phase is Eric Wright Construction.
Stockport Exchange will ultimately deliver up to 375,000 sq ft of office space and 28,000 sq ft of commercial floor space.
