Hattersley Retail Centre – Greater Manchester
Hattersley, Greater Manchester
Bowman Riley supported Maple Grove Developments in their bid to Tameside Council to develop a new retail centre in Hattersley, Greater Manchester. This follows our previous successful projects, Albion Place and No.9 Skipton High Street.
Working closely with Maple Grove, Bowman Riley provided an approach, concept designs and 3D images for the 75,000ft2 retail scheme located on a brownfield site just off the M67 at the junction of Stockport Road and Ashworth Lane. The scheme comprises a mix of units including an anchor store, a drive-through restaurant and retail space.
Our site analysis and concept development focused on links with the recently constructed local community hub and supermarket. This allowed for smaller retail and drive-through food amenities to be located at the focal point of the junction of Stockport Road whilst maintaining the pedestrian scale and opening the retail centre visibility from the highway.
Our proposal offered the best use of the site and was attractive for prospective tenants. Maple Grove was selected by Peak Valley Housing Association and their partners Tameside Council and the Homes and Communities Agency as their preferred developer to take the scheme forward.
Following the success of the bid, Maple Grove Developments appointed Bowman Riley to follow the design through to completion and provide the role of Principal Designer.
