Stevenage Town Square is one of the town’s most iconic and well known areas and its receiving a major upgrade. Working with developer Mace and lead contractor, Ashe, we’re introducing new granite paving, bespoke, retro lighting, new drainage facilities,and more to the area.
The development of the adjacent North Block (the site of Starbucks, Greggs, Subway) will also provide new retail, commercial and flexible office space and will include the restoration of heritage building frontages based upon Stevenage’s initial architectural heritage. The site of the former McDonald’s unit has being stripped and refitted in order to house a new modern restaurant. And, by introducing over 200 spaces with our partners, Co-Space, for flexible workers, SMEs, start ups and more, we can increase the number of people working and using the town centre, therefore increasing demand for services and businesses based here.
Despite the challenges provided by the covid-19 outbreak, our contractors have made fantastic progress, with the area now open to allow shoppers and other visitors to return to the town.
The schemes commenced in Autumn 2019; the first phase of development of the Square itself was completed in March 2021, the regeneration of the North Block is currently underway. Our partners Co-Space are currently fitting out their units on the 1st floor with work expected to be completed by Summer 2021.
