Plans in for fifth phase of Blackpool regeneration

Posted on by in News

Plans have been submitted for a new 4,900m2 office development in Blackpool, which would bring over 1,000 employees into Blackpool town centre.

The land, on the site of the former Apollo 2000 store, sits within the boundary of the Talbot Gateway development around Blackpool North train station and will bring additional economic benefit to the town centre.

Blackpool Council and its development partner Muse are in advanced discussions with an organisation that wishes to develop and occupy a new office within the town centre.

This office would be the fifth phase of the £350M Talbot Gateway development, which is bringing over 8,000 workers and students into Blackpool town centre.

Cllr Mark Smith, Cabinet Member for Levelling Up (Place) at Blackpool Council, said: “This is another major step forward in our plans to make Blackpool better and boost our local economy.

“The area around the train station was previously a desolate area in desperate need of regeneration. Over the last ten years we have regenerated it into a desirable location for businesses looking for quality office space on the Fylde coast. Our initial ambition and investment to build the earlier phases of the Talbot Gateway, has led us to be in this position where more organisations are approaching us to help them move their jobs into the town centre.”
