The proposed vision for the site is for a residential lead, mixed-used scheme that is part of the wider Warrington City Centre Masterplan and within the Stadium Quarter development area.
The Outline planning proposal seeks to provide well designed and sustainable new homes alongside commercial/office space and a new hotel, creating a diverse neighbourhood that supports economic growth. The scheme will be enriched by the inclusion of high-quality green space and an interwoven public realm to support new residents, workers and the local community.
The contextual material palette is inspired by the rich industrial history to the site that includes wire-work production, leather tanning and a coal yard. The themes identified give each block its own character, whilst specific details create a rational facade layout that ties the scheme together.
