Mace to deliver £150m High Wycombe retail, leisure and commercial hub

Wycombe District Council has appointed Mace Real Estate to deliver a £150m leisure and commercial park including a new Waitrose supermarket.

The 17-acre Handy Cross Hub development will include a state of the art sports and leisure centre, a Waitrose supermarket, a 150-bed hotel and 33,000 sq m of office space.

It will feature a central public space to bring the new buildings together, and a park and ride will connect it to High Wycombe town centre.

Mace Real Estate is acting as development manager for the scheme, as well as providing project and cost management and design services.

Mace Real Estate development director Huw Griffiths said: “It’s always great to work on projects which we know will leave a lasting legacy and we look forward to seeing many years of planning and design translating into first class leisure, business and travel facilities for the people of Wycombe and the surrounding areas.”

Wycombe District Council major projects executive Charles Brocklehurst added: “We worked well with Mace Real Estate to conceive the masterplan and to get it through planning and we are very much looking forward to the end result.

“Not only will this development become a new, vibrant destination in High Wycombe, but it will also provide a wide-range of jobs that will boost our local economy and help to ensure a positive future for the surrounding communities.”

Phase one of the scheme has already started with the new sports and leisure centre due for completion towards the end of 2015.
