Green light for next phase at Stockport Exchange
Muse Developments, working in partnership with Stockport Council has received consent from council planners to bring forward the latest phase at Stockport Exchange, which is said to be one of Greater Manchester’s most connected and accessible business hubs.
Following the scheme’s approval, partners aim to get on site early in the new year, with a contractor to be announced in due course.
Both the council and Muse secured £4.2M of funding from the government’s Getting Building Fund through Greater Manchester Combined Authority, to unlock the site and accelerate phase four of the masterplan which, once complete, will include approximately 5,900m2 of high-quality office space along with a 400-space multi-storey car park for office occupiers, featuring electric vehicle charging points and a green ‘living’ wall.
This latest phase will build on the success of previous phases and will incorporate additional public realm improvements to benefit both the town centre and the community.
The wider £145M Stockport Exchange transformation, being delivered collaboratively by Stockport Council and Muse, sits as part of the council’s visionary Mayoral Development Corporation and centrally to its £1bn town centre regeneration programme.
Three phases of development have been successfully delivered at Stockport Exchange, consisting of a 115-bedroom Holiday Inn Express, a 1,000-space NCP multi-storey car park and two office buildings totalling 11,000m2 with ground floor retail, sat within extensive public realm.
