Morgan Sindall has secured a £130 million deal to regenerate part of Warrington.
The group’s regeneration division, Muse Developments, was selected by Warrington Borough Council as its development partner to deliver the council’s Bridge Street regeneration plan.
The scheme is the first phase of the council’s 25-year masterplan for the regeneration of the town centre and waterfront area.
Development plans for the six-hectare Bridge Street site include shops, restaurants, a gym, a cinema, a food-store, an indoor market, a cultural centre, a hotel and new council offices.
Work is subject to planning permission, but expected to begin in 2013.
Paul Smith, chief executive of Morgan Sindall, said: “Muse’s appointment as Warrington Borough Council’s development partner demonstrates its ability to continue to win and deliver complex, long-term regeneration partnership projects despite a challenging environment for urban regeneration.
“This is one of the largest planned regeneration schemes in the North West.”
