The next phase of Crosby Village centre’s transformation will get underway next month according to owner St. Modwen.
The announcement of a June start follows the recent appointment of Caddick Construction to carry out the works.
A full-scale refurbishment of the existing Glenn Buildings North and Glenn Buildings South as well as the replacement of number 10 Moor Lane with a two-storey retail and leisure scheme will be included in the phase.
The units, ranging from 645 sq ft to 9,770 sq ft, are due for completion before Christmas 2017.
David Nuttall, development manager at regeneration specialist St. Modwen, says: “We acquired the assets in Crosby just over 12 months ago and it was clear that the village centre needed a lift. We are confident the new scheme will breathe new life into the traditional high street, preserving and modernising the attractive 1930s buildings while delivering new accommodation suitable for modern retailers.
“Since acquiring Crosby Village centre, we have agreed a new 10-year lease with Home Bargains, we have also refurbished around 4,500 sq ft of office space, which is now 70 % let. We are extremely excited about progressing with this next phase.”
The project team working on the area’s enhancement includes RPS, JM Architects, NJL Planning, Hopkins Coates and Rodgers Leak.
LSH is the sole letting agent for the units.
