£70m Rochdale Riverside Redevelopment

by Paul Heming

An exciting new scheme is just around the corner in Rochdale. The development known as Rochdale Riverside is a joint venture between Genr8 Developments and Kajima who are working closely in partnership with Rochdale Borough Council.

The exciting redevelopment had its planning application approved on 10th April 2017 and the works will include for the construction of approximately 200,000 square feet of mixed shopping and leisure facilities, in addition to vital elements of regeneration for the town centre itself including; new transport routes; a new bus station and Metrolink connection.

Mike Smith, partner at Genr8 Developments, said:

“We’ve worked very closely with the council on Rochdale Riverside to ensure that our approach to this important scheme is in line with its own aspirations for the site and the borough.

“We recognise that this scheme will play a significant role in the regeneration of Rochdale and it is therefore imperative that we attract the right mix of occupiers to boost the local economy and establish Rochdale as a key leisure and retail destination.”

The overall value of the project is estimated to be in the region of £50million and forms part of a wider £250million redevelopment budget for the town. This is without question great news for the town with the works giving a £17m boost to the economy and creating over 1,000 jobs.

What’s more, the Construction Supply Chain in the region is also set to reap the rewards of the increased investment. With Demolition works having already commenced and construction anticipated to start in the Summer 2017, many Specialist packages of work are soon to tender: C-Link will keep you updated on this.
