The first phase of Stretford Mall’s redevelopment plan will be determined this week, as councillors meet to establish a date for the start of the project.
Removing the roof of the centre, re-establishing the former King Street thoroughfare and developing a large-scale market hall all feature in Bruntwood Works and Trafford Council’s plans to transform the dated centre.
Caddick Construction has been appointed to deliver the scheme by both the council and property developers involved, and officers have recommended that the project be approved.
The detailed phase one application of Stretford Mall comes after the approval of the outline vision to develop the site back in March.
Phase one features include:
- The removal of the roof to unlock the site for the recreation of King Street, a high street featuring independent shops, bars and restaurants
- A new covered market hall that will provide a home for retailers and food traders with the aim of boosting the local evening economy
- Upgrades to the existing multi storey car park and the creation of King Street Square, an outdoor public space capable of hosting events.
The design team is led by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios in collaboration with Studio Mutt, Exterior Architecture, Avison Young and Civic Engineers.
The wider Stretford Mall master plan is as follows:
- Up to 800 residential units featuring a mix of apartments and townhouses
- Up to 140,000 sq ft of commercial space
- Up to 30,000 sq ft of space that could be used as drinking establishments takeaways, theatres, cinemas, and cafes
- Up to 7,750 sq ft for learning and non-learning institutions
- Up to 25,800 sq ft for local community use
