Case Studies

Project: Time Square, Warrington 

TOTAL VALUE – £142M

Time Square is an innovative new beating heart for Warrington town centre; an eagerly-awaited renaissance for Warrington’s leisure scene, Time Square is creating history as the town’s signature family-friendly shopping, restaurant and leisure destination.

The scheme is creating a place to benefit both a proud town and the wider North West region and has delivered 40,000 sq ft of retail space, 92,000 sq ft of leisure facilities, including a 13-screen Cineworld cinema alongside seven family restaurants, a 42,000 sq ft indoor market hall hosting over 50 traders, a 100,000 sq ft council office building welcoming over 1,000 employees, a 1,160-space multi-storey car park with 54 EV charging points, and a new public square.

Working collaboratively with partners, we’ve been able to bring a new vibrancy and purpose to Warrington, by blending high-quality, well-designed new buildings, with historical elements of the town centre by retaining a historic façade for the market to create a striking statement building.

Time Square is being delivered by Warrington & Co on behalf of Warrington Borough Council, with Muse the scheme’s development manager.

 

Project: Your New Town Hall, Brixton 

TOTAL VALUE – £160M

Your New Town Hall is a prime example of successful town centre repurposing that’s blended Brixton’s heritage with its aspirations for the future. Your New Town Hall is a car-free development, designed to preserve Brixton’s heritage and transform it into a vibrant and sustainable destination.

The £160 million development, delivered in partnership with Lambeth Council, allows the council to save £4.5 million a year through the reduced the number of their core office buildings from 14 to just two.

The project has successfully delivered four sites in Brixton, which consist of an energy-efficient 120,000 sq ft civic office, refurbished Grade II listed town hall, new public realm and 268 new homes, 40% of which are affordable. In addition, a café has been brought forward as well as a new cycle hub with changing/shower facilities. The next phase, Olive Morris House, will provide 74 new apartments over six storeys with commercial and retail space at ground and basement level.

 

Project: Marischal Square, Aberdeen 

TOTAL VALUE – £107M

Our flagship scheme in the heart of the Granite City, Marischal Square, has created a vibrant new mixed-use quarter which included Grade ‘A’ office space, a hotel, cafes, restaurants and civic space, along with extensive, landscaping and public realm improvements.

The development is a keystone of the council’s city centre masterplan proposals, providing a new civic space for Aberdeen and creating a striking setting for both Provost Skene’s House and Marischal College.

A key feature for the scheme is the part-pedestrianised road layout that includes an illuminated fountain and extensive public space. However, the jewel in the crown at Marischal Square is ‘Poised’ – a 15m-high steel leopard designed by renowned sculptor, Andy Scott.

We delivered Marischal Square in partnership with Aberdeen City Council and Aviva Investors.

 

Project: Salford Central 

TOTAL VALUE – £1bn

Salford Central is a game-changer! Repurposing a former surface car park and derelict area of Salford into a safe and vibrant mixed-use destination.
